More on retiring Exchange 2003 - Public Folders

Moving public folders to Exchange 2007?

Often I see an incomplete replication to the new server. Inside Outlook you may see this error when opening the public folders:

Cannot Display the Folder. Network problems are preventing connection to Microsoft Exchange.


To move your public folders, open Exchange System Manager on your 2003 server. Expand the Administrative Groups and Servers. Keep expanding things until you see your Public Folder Store. I recommend performing this operation over a weekend if you have large public folders.

Right Click on the Public Folder Store and select Move all Replicas. Give this some time. Eventually, you should see your folder count on the 2003 server diminish. Running the command: Get-Publicfolder -recurse on the Exchange Management Shell should begin to show an increasingly longer list of folders.

If you receive an error or the folders just do not seem to move, there could be two things: permissions or SSL on Exchange 2007. Make sure you have full control of ALL the public folders. If you still can't move the folders, open IIS Manager on the Exchange 2007 server. Expand the server name, Web Sites, then the Default Website. Right click on Exadmin and select properties. Click on the Directory Security tab then select the Edit button on the bottom of the window. Deselect the Require Secure Channel (SSL). Click OK twice.

Hey, with you're great talent in this area, I think you're not gonna have so much trouble to understand things like I am right now.
I still have a hard time to translate things in my simple brain wires (Multiply is really hard to grasp, but Blogger is much more friendly to me, I still love the simple features in Y!360*), and maybe I also got a slow loading brain.
I just made a blog in Blogger, so there's no post there yet. But I'll start to fill in this month.
So how to make an invite in here?
I'm sooooo clueless, as usual.

I use my name now (in Multiply and Blogger), cos my baby is almost a year old, and he's gonna need his name for himself.

I like to work with other tools, but sometimes I had awful problems. Once day I had unusual issue with my MS Exchange and couldn't make anything. I was lucky and soon a friend suggested me the fine solution, which would help in this trouble - recovering exchange from .ost files.
