Moving public folders RRS feed

  • Question

  • OK, I'm to the point where I can shutdown the old exchange server 2007 and work solely of the new server 2007. I shutdown services and was not able to access public folders. It is replicating fine so I know data is there. How do I get exchange to point to the public folders on the new server...

    TIA!

    Okay, so each server has a full compliment of folders.

    Look at the database's property page and select the "Client settings"
    tab.

    No. But your users may be presented with a logon dialog when you do.

    Have you modified the default public folder store on the mailbox
    databases on the new server?
     
    If public folders are repliction that would seem to point to there
    being a replica on the old server. Have you removed all the public
    folder instances from the old server? If you have, you should be able
    to remove the public folder store from the old server.

  • No at this point it is only replicating to each server.

    Not sure what you mean by modifiying the public folder store on the mailbox databases on the new server.

    would I need to stop the replication at this point?

    Looking for a step by step guide if possible....

    TIA
