I am experimenting with move requests and noticed something and have a question about.
There is an Exchange 2007 server and an Exchange 2010 server
To move a mailbox from Exchange 2007 to 2010, from the Exchange 2010 console I right-clicked the mailbox and issued a new local move request, picked the target server/database (the 2010 server I'm issuing the move request from), and it went off and completed just fine.
Monitoring the Outlook client, there didn't appear to be any down time until after the move was completed.
After the move was completed successfully, the Outlook Client (Outlook 2013) eventually went into a Trying to Connect phase.
Then, a couple mins later after trying, it just "Disconnected".
So naturally, I close the Outlook 2013 client that this mailbox is being used on, and re-opened. It connected fine.
But I checked the connection status of Outlook in the system tray and noticed while it is connected to the 2010 server (MAIL2), it still has a "Exchange Public Folders" established to the Exchange 2007 server (MAIL1).
Questions are, I guess:
1. Should the Outlook client at any time disconnect after a mailbox move request; do users have to restart the Outlook client after their mailbox on the server side has been moved?
2. Is the "Exchange Public Folders" connection necessary? I guess there's no way to migrate that to 2010?
