We are nearly completed with our migration from exchange server 2003 to Exchange 2010 and all that is left is the public folder. Here is my understanding of the process.
1. I have added a replicas of all public folders including the Free/busy and offline address book to the exchange 2010 server
2. I have pointed all of the 2010 mailbox databases to reference the public folder store database on the 2010 server
3. All user mailboxes are moved to 2010
Now here is the part I am uncertain. From my understanding all I need to do to rehome the public folders permanently is from Exchange system manager on the 2003 server is Right click the public folder store and use the "Move all replicas" command and wait until all the folders show a 0 size.
I have been using the following link as my primary reference: http://msexchangeteam.com/archive/2007/06/25/445429.aspx
My question is now that all the users are using the 2010 public folder database will this process overwrite the contents in the 2010 store or will it synchronize?
Are there any steps I am missing?
Thank you for your assistance
