Exchange 2013 autodiscover question about PublicFolders pointing to old server.

I had Exchange 2007, and migrated everything to Exchange 2013,
One users is having "conflict problems in Outlook", the errors I found seems to be that the Outlook y trying to look for the old server (Exchange 2007), I have uninstalled the server passing every roll to the new server...

Doing an autodiscover query, I can see my old server in only one part; maybe this is the problem, maybe not.

Part of the autodiscover:
<MdbDN>/o=First Organization/ou=Exchange Administrative Group (FYDIBOHF23SPDLT)/cn=Configuration/cn=Servers/ Private MDB</MdbDN>

SERVxxxx.avila.local it´s my old server and it still exists on my network, but I have uninstalled completely Exchange...

How can I fix the autodiscover??  Also, on Outlook 2013 I am not seeing any Public Folders I created on Exchange 2013 when I am outside the organization.

A few things. What version of Outlook are you using? When you run the following command in the EMS, what do you get?
Get-ClientAccessServer | Select Name,AutodiscoverServiceInternalURI
marpanetAuthor Commented:
Outlook 2013.

When running the command:
On name, I get the name of my new server
AutodiscoverServiceInternalUri: I get the external autodiscover url (working one) (

You can configure without problem a new account using autodiscover.
Jeff GloverSr. Systems AdministratorCommented:
OK, if you can configure a new account then Autodiscover should be fine. For the Public folders, I assume you have migrated all your old Public Folders to Exchange 2013 and Completed the Migration using the Powershell cmdlet.
When you run
Get-OrganizationConfig | fl
What do you see for PublicFolderMigrationComplete and PublicFodlersEnabled ?
Creating Active Directory Users from a Text File

If your organization has a need to mass-create AD user accounts, watch this video to see how its done without the need for scripting or other unnecessary complexities.

True and Local.....

Actually, because we don´t use public folders.... Once migrated the root folder from Exchange 2007 to 2013....  and after trying many things.. I deleted the publicmailbox and recreated it again, without migration, and still cant see it from Outlook....   Also, I can see the "originatingServer" I see the old server, is this normal?
Jeff GloverSr. Systems AdministratorCommented:
THe originating server is where you ran Forest and Domain prep from.
marpanetAuthor Commented:
Ok, so that´s no problem..
The problem I have is that in the autodiscover

The old server appeards....
Also, I have read that the SMTP from the public Mailbox now it´s @domain.local , and I have to change it to , but I haven´t been able to.
Jeff GloverSr. Systems AdministratorCommented:
Never is easy. Autodiscover.xml is generated on the fly. There is no way that I know of to edit it manually on the server. Can you see what the default Public Folder Mailbox is set to on a user account
Get-mailbox "name" | select name, defaultpublicfoldermailbox

And maybe do a Get-Database -Identity "dbname" | fl and make sure the PublicFolderDatabase attribute is empty

Otherwise, I suspect this has to do with the failed Public Folder migration but where autodiscover.xml gets the PublicFolderServer  from is beyond me.

In the Get-mailbox "name", the user does point to the Public Mailbox...

The Get-Database command does not work, I think you meant Get-MailboxDatabase... but when trying using the name of the Public Mailbox, it says it dosent exist.
Jeff GloverSr. Systems AdministratorCommented:
There are no Public folder mailbox databases in 2013. I meant to do (and you are right, I meant Get-mailboxDatabase) that command against your mailbox database. Do you have at least one Public Folder mailbox created besides the Primary Hierarchy one?

I am still trying to investigate the problema... post right back this week
marpanetAuthor Commented:
I haven´t found a solution to the problem...
I will try to unistall the old Exchange server to see if the problem goes away.
marpanetAuthor Commented:
As I uninstalled Exchange 2007 and demoted the old server, the problema went away.
