i just have migrated exchange 2003 to 2010 on server 2012.  i got everything working and quite a nightmare i might add.  one issue left.  did a move request for everyone and this 1 user it could not move.  I then disabled the mailbox and made a new mailbox. new mail is ok but he lost all public folder calendars and contacts.  ran a test mailbox and disabled, shows right up in disconnected mailboxes.his does not!

-how do i get this back?  every command i have tried in the emc shell has not worked and don't know what to do?

-added new user in emc 2010 and the public folder calendars we have still don't come up, Ive made sure all automatic services that exchange is running on new 2010 server are running.   2003 exchange server is still running also.

There is usually a delay in the mailbox being listed as disconnected, this is because Exchange won't list it as disconnected until a maintenance cycle is run, you can expedite this by running the following powershell command

Get-MailboxDatabase | CleanMailboxDatabase

Sometimes however, this doesn't seam to work as well as it should so you might have to target the database directly

CleanMailboxDatabase -Identity {database name}

For some reason, there's been occasions where I have had to do this a couple of times before the database shows as disconnected.

Get-MailboxDatabase | Clean-MailboxDatabase, had to add the dash in it and it ran but the mailbox i disabled still does not show under the disconnected mailbox, it has been a whole day.
what do i do to get the disabled box back?  I see the box in exchange 2003 that i have in coexistence but do not see in exchange 2010.

I have worked around it, heres what i did.  I kept searching online and somehow found click here.  at the bottom the ctrl +6 keys worked great.  without this i could not get the public folders to show up under calanders but the outlook and server were pointing to the correct public folder database.

2- to get the contacts back when i migrated from exchange 2003 to 2010 they had me backup the mailboxes or maybe i did it?  anyway i had all the pst before i moved the mailboxes.  i tried to import but it said it had a password so i used click here
and this took password off, imported .pst into outlook and got all contacts back.  hope this helps someone, dont know if there was an easier way?
