  • Public Folder Problem

    I have an issue with the Public Folders.
    We for the most part' successfully transitioned everything over to Exchange 2007 from Exch2003.

    We are a single organization\server. Now, the public folders were unfortunately only partially replicated over to the Exchange 2007 server.

    Problem is, too many cooks in the kitchen, and someone figured I was ready to fully remove Exchange 2003 totally. The 'moveallreplicas.ps1' script was never run. Hence, only some public folders are available. Seems that I can see all of the folders; however, most do not have any content.

    So, my question is - I have a backup of the Exchange 2003 public folder database (*.edb file). Is there a way I can get that file to be used with the Exchange 2007 system? Can I do a disaster recovery install onto a different system (no exchange installed previously on the diff system)? Or do a reinstall on the old system regardless of the hardware issues coming up (everything else was uninstalled from that system except Exchange and Messaging and collaboration services - they couldn't get everything uninstalled thankfully (I think thankfully)). Looking at ESM still on a different system I see the Exch 2007 admin group and the 03 admin group;however, nothing resides inside the 03 admin group.

    Hopefully I've set forth an easy to follow issue,
    Thanks All

      Good forward planning that man!

      It could have been possible to restore the folders to a server in a test environment or there are tools to pull the data out (I've used the quest ones successfully).
