I am transitioning from exchange 2003 sp2 to Exchange 2007 SP1.
Had all mailboxes moved to new server.
Noticed then public folders started showing no items (public folders had not been transferred.
Tried moving public folders with the MoveAllReplicas.ps1 cmdlet and nothing seemed to happen. We don't have all that much in our public folders. Waited awhile and saw no signs of action.
Used 2003 EMC to Move Replicas. This gave me a nice dialog running through all the folders and a message that i needed to check "Folder Replicas" to make sure it is empty when replication was complete. Let that run. Noticed that what was a once empty contacts folder now had 328 of the 2000+ contacts in it from the outlook interface. Hours later still 328 contacts. Next day still 328 contacts. "Folder Replicas" on 2003 still has entries shown as in sync. The size of the replica indicates that it still holds the other 2000 contacts but won't give them up. The 2007 public folder still have 328. This is the only folder that I was intimately familiar with as to how many objects it had. The others I can't verify if they are all there. Some folders have many entries.
Is there a way to poke into the 2003 public folder to see what remains? Is there a way from 2003 EMC to export the contents of the public folder?
