Exchange Public Folder migration - Items too large

I am running a migration of Exchange public folders from 2007 to 2013.  There is approx 70GB of data in public folders arranged through approx. 5000 folders and I am getting issues running the initial sync with some items being too large.

Searching the folders for large items is apparently not a thing.

I have not found any logs of what these items are, is there anyway to tell before I skip all large items or is there some way to force the large items through?

Check the max message size on the receive connectors on the Hub Ttansport servers and also on the replication settings for the Public Folder databases.
You can view any replication event logs in Event Viewer by increasing the event levels in Exchange Powershell, in the the eMC using the Set-EventLogLevel to either Medium or High levels:

All connectors and transport config was set to 100MB to try allow it through but this still did not allow it to complete.

In the end I set the large item limit for the move higher which allowed it to get to 95% and also tell me what items it skipped (in the report generated by

get-publicfoldermigrationrequest | get-publicfoldermigrationrequeststatistics -includereport | fl > c:\pfmigration\report.txt

Open in new window

"

I did not have to alter the logging levels for this to be logged.  These items could then be moved manually (there turned out to be only one and it was 37MB).

The command used to change this setting if anyone is interested was (executed from the 2013 server):

get-publicfoldermigrationrequest | set-publicfoldermigrationrequest -largeitemlimit 50

Open in new window


In my case I did not have to use the acceptlargedataloss switch
