Things that frequently get forgotten when migrating


Public Folders are not replicated or moved

To replicate public folders:

Use either PFDAVADMIN or Exchange system manager from 2003

PFDAVADMIN

  • image 

ESM

  • You can set by adding the replication partners on each folder by right click the folder -> properties -> replication tab -> add
  • image
  • Or by right click the folder -> all tasks -> manage settings -> next -> modify list of replica servers -> -> add servers

To move public folder replicas

  • From Exchange Powershell “.\MoveAllReplicas.ps1 -Server <MySourceServer> -NewServer <MyTargetServer>”
