Public Folder Migration Exchange 2010 to 2013
Posted on 2014-03-24
Been pulling what little hair I've got out on this.
I've successfully migrated all mailboxes to Exch 2013 CU2 and has been working smoothly for several months.
Tried to migrate public folders for the first time about a month ago and at the last step in testing (verify connectivity with Outlook 2010) to the new public folder mailbox I couldn't access the new folders.
Did a rollback that went ok. Found out later the account I was using for testing had a clobbered profile.....Oh well. Waited and insured that everything was working correctly.
Started new migration this last weekend. As we didn't have very many public folders I exported their content and then deleted them all (except the news feed folder which refused to delete). My goal was to elliminate as much as possible and I'd import contents after migration.
Migration went well and have completed everything upto the point of enabling new public folders for all users but.......
Here's my problem I've got two accounts to test the new public folders from Outlook 2010 (one a test mailbox and one live). Neither one can see the public folders, nothing, zilch. Rebuilt the profile on the live mailbox with the same results, still cannot see the public folders.
Folders "are" visiable in the EAC. Live mailbox has owner rights to the root of the Public folder hierarchy and the test mail box has editor. I've got two public folders within the database. The internet newsgroup and a folder test.
I ran the cmdlet to assign both mailboxes to the new public folders. And when I run the cmdlet get-mailbox -identity etest | fl it shows the correct public folder database (same for the live account).
Where do I go from here? I've heard there are problems with CU3 and I'm not sure about SP1.
