Exchange Migration Public Folders

We were going through the progress of Migrating Public Folders From Exchange Server 2010 to 2013, we exported the .csv files, but the server was accidently unplugged through the process although the csv were created suscesfully

is anybody able to assist if I run

New-PublicFolderMigrationRequest -SourceDatabase (Get-PublicFolderDatabase -Server Hosting) -CSVData (Get-Content C:\Import\Pf-mailbox.csv -Encoding Byte)

I get the database needs to be locked, not sure what to do

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

You haven't 'locked' the public folders (kinda like making them read-only)

Whereabouts in the process was it unplugged? Was it while the CSVs were being generated? If so, just rerun the commands for the CSVs. All these do is gather statistics about the current environment. They aren't really doing anything at this point. Or was it when you were running the New-PublicFolderMigrationRequest?

If the latter, try issuing the following. It may have picked up where it left off when the power came back.

Get-PublicFolderMigrationRequest | Get-PublicFolderMigrationRequestStatistics -IncludeReport | fl

My guess is you might be at the AutoSuspended state.
