Public Folders Move from Exchange 2003 to Exchange 2010

    Question

  • I have ran the AddReplica script and the Folder structure resides on Exchange 2010. I then ran the MoveAllReplicas scripts, but that doesn't seem to be working. When I run getupdate on Public folders 98% of the folders list 0 items. My databses is about 250 MB in size on the source server.

    edit - No errors are being written to the event log on either side.

  • If you used the Move All Replicas script then Exchange has started to remove the data. You will have to go back to the previous database that had some of the content has gone in and wait it out. That is why I never use the move all replicas script until all content has been replicated, because if something goes wrong, you have no back out plan.

  • How long have you waited?

    Public Folder replication can take days. If you have run it and expecting something to happen immediately, then you are in for a disappointment.

    Do ensure that the traffic isn't queueing though, as it passes over SMTP so an issue with SMTP traffic or the RGC can cause the replication to fail. However if some of the folders have content in them then traffic is moving, you will just have to be patient.

  • Thanks for the reply. I have pointed the Exchange 2010 MB DB back to the Exchange Folder Database and restarted Outlook and am unable to see any of the old data.
