Remove Public Folders from Exchange 2003 to Exchange 2010

If you are in the middle of migration or will start one and wondering how to deal with PF folders on your legacy Exchange 2003 server , here is the link and this is pretty much all you need to know and will do to move them from Exchange 2003 to Exchange 2010.

First create PF database on the Exchange 2010 server

image

Move existing Pf folder replicas from E03 server into this newly created PF database on E210 Server , by logging on E03 server…..

image

Make sure the Public folder is empty

image

Dismount the PF folders on E03 Server for a while to make sure no one is complaining

image

After making sure everything works fine delete the PF folder database on E03 Server , if you still have replicas you will receive fallowing… allow time for replication to finish

image 

You could achieve same goal from PS on E210 server

\MoveAllReplicas.ps1 -Server MySourceServer -NewServer MyTargetServer

 

Get-PublicFolderStatistics -Server <server with public folder database to be removed>

Hi,

You can remove a public folder database using the steps in this procedure. Because this process is different if you are removing the last public folder database in your organization. If you want to remove a public folder database from a mailbox server, you must first move the data within the public folder database to a public folder database on another server, and then you remove the public folder database. Thank you...
