Exchange 2007 to 2013 Public Folder Issues

I am having issues trying to replicate the public folders from 2007 to 2013.  I do not have a bunch of data so I was thinking of  backing up the Public Folders to a PST, and then just creating new public folders within Exchange 2013 once the old server was decommissioned.

Is that possible?  Are there any issues or downside to that idea?

The biggest downside is that any outlook profiles that are using the public folders on the 2007 server will never get the indication that the folder has moved and will continue trying to connect to them even after you have decommissioned the 2007 server.  That can be a pain to clean up.

There is a technet article on public folder migration

I would suggest you use this for the work you have planned.

I tried that route and got stuck... I believe the issue was trying to remove the special characters and spaces in the PF names..... I could not figure out how to get past that part..... I used this walk thru:

So there is a method to clean this up

Simply replace the bad characters first in the alias, then set the new alias then proceed with migration

$x = get-mailpublicfolder | select identity,alias

$x | foreach {$_.alias = $_.alias -replace " - ","-"}

Open in new window


You can repeat the above line for each invalid character, then one you have done all the replace actions simply update the identity
$x | foreach {set-mailpublicfolder $_.identity -alias $_.alias}

Open in new window

I tried to do it again and now I am getting this error.... I believe it is because I already started the process once....

How can I start over or correct the issue:

ok so pretty much what we are doing is eliminating invalid characters like spaces etc
e.g
"OAB Version 2"

so let's say we wanted to replace the space with a valid character
$x = get-mailpublicfolder | select identity,alias

#The line below replaces the value in the first quote (which is a space) with a hyphen
$x | foreach {$_.alias = $_.alias -replace " ","-"}

Open in new window

                                         
So once that is done for you could rename that specific alias with the new value of  "$_.alias"   which would now be the old alias with spaces removed and replaced with hyphens.

so we would have to simply cycle through and replace all the invalid public folder aliases and then do the final step which renames them,

We can try this for just one first so you can get the idea.

$x = get-mailpublicfolder | ? {$_.alias -like "OAB Version *"} | select identity,alias

$x | % {
$newalias = $_.alias -replace " ","-"
set-mailpublicfolder $_.identity -alias $newalias
}

Open in new window

 

What the above code will do is correct the "OAB Version x" aliases which have invalid names.

You have been really helpful and I apologize for being so confused.... so i am pasting this in the 2007 server:

$x = get-mailpublicfolder | ? {$_.alias -like "OAB Version *"} | select identity,alias

$x | % {
$newalias = $_.alias -replace " ","-"
set-mailpublicfolder $_.identity -alias $newalias

and then doing the same thing for each PF by just replacing the name within the quotes in the first line?
becraig

ok so if you look at your errors., you will see they are mostly spaces which that command will replace

WARNING: Object xxx.local/Microsoft Exchange System
WARNING: "OAB Version 2" is not valid for Alias. Valid values are: Strings
WARNING: Object xxx.local/Microsoft Exchange System

So you can do two replace options


$x = get-mailpublicfolder | select identity,alias

$x | % {
$newalias = $_.alias -replace " ","-"
` -replace " - ","-"
set-mailpublicfolder $_.identity -alias $newalias
}

Open in new window

What if I delete them? Are these the only issues that you see?

And if so, will I need to rerun the commands above to delete the previous migration and start again?
becraig

so it seems you have two bad items if you know why they are corrupt then you can follow the steps here to skip them (simply increase the number to 4) :

I did so and then performed the following:

Set-OrganizationConfig -PublicFoldersLockedForMigration:$true
Set-PublicFolderMigrationRequest -Identity \PublicFolderMigration -PreventCompletion:$false
Resume-PublicFolderMigrationRequest -Identity \PublicFolderMigration
Set-Mailbox -Identity tuser -DefaultPublicFolderMailbox mailbox1

After doing so I logged into Outlook as TUSER and cannot open the Public Folders... It gives an error message that appears to reference the 2007 public folders and the fact that it cannot connect.

Also, when I log into the Exchange 2013 ECP and go under public folders I do not see any... only the public folder mailbox.

I am wondering if we prematurely moved to a next step before the migration status was actually changed to complete.

It might be late not but can you get the status of the current migration ?

WAIT!!!!!!  It's working now..... I see the public folders..... What about the System Folders.... how can I tell if those migrated over.... I had a System Public Folder that had Outlook Forms in them that assisted in opening mail that had been Archived with a 3rd party product.

Sorry I was out for a few.

You can look at the log to see if those folders were involved as a part of the migration.

I guess this was just exchange replication lag, it happens :-(

These should have come over though, here is some good reading:

If you have additional issues later, you can always feel free to open up a new question and some of the other experts can chime in.
