SBS Migration Help - Advice on 2 mailboxes left on old server

Hi,
I have run into some issues with the mailbox on the source sbs 2008 Server. DB will not mount (another story
2 large mailboxes are left on the source server and I have managed to export to pst using Outlook on the users pc.
I want to know, should i continue to repairing the db and trying to move the 2 failed boxes again or delete the mailboxes from the new server, recreate and import the pst. If I do this way, I was hoping I could continue the migration path and uninstall Exchange etc to complete the migration?

Thoughts?
Thanks
Matt

no, it's not worth the time.

or delete the mailboxes from the new server, recreate and import the pst
. better option especially with only 2 mailboxes it will likely involve less time than repairing the edb.

If you can repair and mount it, you can complete the migration.  if not, you'll be doing a manual uninstall of Exchange from SBS 2008.
