If you are in the middle of migration or will start one and wondering how to deal with PF folders on your legacy Exchange 2003 server , here is the link and this is pretty much all you need to know and will do to move them from Exchange 2003 to Exchange 2010.

First create PF database on the Exchange 2010 server


Move existing Pf folder replicas from E03 server into this newly created PF database on E210 Server , by logging on E03 server…..


Make sure the Public folder is empty


Dismount the PF folders on E03 Server for a while to make sure no one is complaining


After making sure everything works fine delete the PF folder database on E03 Server , if you still have replicas you will receive fallowing… allow time for replication to finish


You could achieve same goal from PS on E210 server

\MoveAllReplicas.ps1 -Server MySourceServer -NewServer MyTargetServer


Get-PublicFolderStatistics -Server <server with public folder database to be removed>
