Hi,
I am set to do a small SBS migration from 2008 to 2011 in a few weeks. I have not done a migration before so have setup a home lab for me do practice migration. All have gone well but I am having issues with moving the public folders and with a powershell command that I am trying to run. Am following the Microsoft SBS migration guide to a T.
Also having issues moving the PF, even though I have followed the command in the document by Microsoft - See attached screenshots.

Many thanks for your help

Stil not able to remove the public folder database from the source server.

Another Update,
Resolved, carried out the following - not sure if anyone can provide any thoughts on this?

Verfied the offline address book has an entry in mailbox databases, source and destination servers. Not 100% sure this was the cause but worth checking.
 
Also ran this command:
.\ MoveAllReplicas.ps1 –Server EXCH-MBX-01 –NewServer EXCH-MBX-02

Then tried removing the pf database and it removed. Not sure which one it was.

This function is not immediate. Most likely it was just timing. You have to give the system time to replicate the public folders. The less they were used on the source server, the less of an issue they become. Regardless, it can take any where from 2 hours to 2 days to complete.
