I am transitioning an Exchange 2003 server to an Exchange 2010 server. As soon as I got the Exchange 2010 server up and going, I changed the paths of the DBs and the PublicFolder DB. I then also renamed the Default Public Folder from PublicFolderDatabase0224351747 to PFdb. Everything was going great, and everything sees the new name I assigned to the DB. So, I got to the stage where you right click the Public Folder Store on the Exchange 2003 box and select Move All Replicas. It showed the PFdd and I selected. However, the replication never worked. When I drilled down, I noticed the messages in the queue for the server-to-server connector. I drilled down to the message and noticed it is addressed to PublicFolderDatabase0224351747@blablabla.com instead of PFdb@blablabla.com. I have checked everywhere and I cannot seem to figure out why it is still referencing the old PF database name. Any ideas?

It’s referencing the old pf db because it still exists and is still your primary public folder db. Until the new one is recognized as the primary the old one will still be referenced. <a href=”http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb331970.aspx”>Read this</a> and verify all steps are taken correctly.
