We have gone from SBS2011 to 200R2 and Exchange 2010.
I'm trying to remove Exchange from the SBS2011 box but am told there is an error and I need to move the PF replicas.
All articles talk of a MoveAllReplicas.ps1 script in the Exchange\14\script folder.
When this is run I get a red error: You must specify a value with the replicas parameter. the fullyqualifiederror id A0F44E52

We don't use Public folders so don't need them on the new server.

Many thanks

Here is Microsoft's suggestion for removing the last public folder in your organization.

http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd876883(v=exchg.141).aspx

A couple of things you want to make sure of is If you have a mixed Exchange 2003 or Exchange 2007 and Exchange 2010 organization you should perform these procedures against an Exchange 2010 server. Also you should make sure that you are using Outlook 2007 and later clients as earlier Outlook clients require public folders to connect to your Exchange. And finally, don't remove the last public folder database if your organization uses public folders to distribute organizational forms or to replicate free/busy information to or from another Exchange organization.
