Hello,
 
 
 
I have migrated from Exchange 2003 (Windows 2003 R2) to Exchange 2010 (Windows 2008 R2).  I am now in the process of steps required to uninstall Exchange 2003 from the server we migrated from.
 
 
 
One of the steps requires for me to delete the public folder database.  Note please that I had to work with Microsoft support to address some issues with public folder links and we had to use ADSIEDIT to manually ensure that client workstations were connecting to the correct public folder, and Microsoft also removed any links to the old server's public folder.  I'm not sure if this has anything to do with the issue I am experiencing at this time.
 
 
 
The issue I am experiencing is as follows:
 
 
 1.I attempt to delete the public folder that I know is no longer in use.  I am prompted with this error:
 
2.When I try to mount the database, I receive:
 

3.I have tried to remove the public folder database and stm file to create a fresh store that can be removed.  However this has not worked either.
 
Any assistance you can furnish would be greatly appreciated.  

 
 
Regards,
 
Rudy
