Exchange 2007 to 2013 Public Folder Migration

Hello all,

I have an issue that I've reached a dead end on.

I'm finalising my 2007 to 2013 migration, and am getting the following error when attempting to migrate public folders from '07 to '13.

get-publicfolder : There is no existing PublicFolder that matches the
following Identity: '\'. Please make sure that you specified the correct
PublicFolder Identity and that you have the necessary permissions to view
At line:1 char:1
+ get-publicfolder
+ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    + CategoryInfo          : NotSpecified: (0:Int32) [Get-PublicFolder], Mapi
    + FullyQualifiedErrorId : 59C77D03,Microsoft.Exchange.Management.MapiTasks

Open in new window

After doing quite a bit of research, I've taken the following actions to attempt to repair this;
1. Remove and reattached my mailbox on my administration account
2. Have made sure the Microsoft System Attendant has a valid HomeDB attribute using ADSI edit (was missing) set to the public folder database distinguished name
3. Have restarted Exchange 2007 server

And now I'm stumped!

Any assistance would be appreciated.

Hello guys, I need to clarify the PowerShell output because the above responses are exactly what I'm attempting with error.

Step 1 in any public folder migration is to run the command;

Open in new window

This command returns the error;
There is no existing PublicFolder that matches the
following Identity: '\'.

Open in new window
