    Removing a Public Folder Database

    Exchange 2007.

    At present there is two Exchange servers Called Mx01 and Green. All mailboxes and the copy of Public folders used are on the MX01 - there is still a copy of the Public Folders on Green but I would like to remove this.

    On the Microsoft Guide it says to run "Remove–PublicFolderDatabase –Identity "Public Folder Database"" - Which is fine. But i think that will remove all the copies of this Database as they both have the same name?

    Or is there something else I need to remove first?

    No, as long as the data (both system & non-syatem) has been replicated to Mx01 and no DB is associated Green you should be fine. If you want use the shell rather than the EMC then you should specify the server/sg/db as the identity, this will delete on that particular server.

    Thanks Sukh,

    I have to wait for the replicas to completely transfer. Although it appears to be stuck on three folders - any ideas?

    PF replication have a mind of their own , It can take up to 48hrs. I would wait then pull off a publicfolderstatistics report to check replica and item count.
    Which folders are they anyway?

    I'm checking that - I have been watching the report for the last hour. All have gone bar 4 folders which just seem to be sitting there and have been for 40 mins or so!

    I think you will need more that 40 mins, also check the item count.

    The Item Count is the first number after the name its just not formatted very well above.

    Its replicated over 2300 folders in about 35 mins just sitting on those 4 now!

    If you compare the item count for those folders in both servers, what's the difference?
    Has it even started?

    Its started to move them - for example Country Visits June 09 has 17 items on green and 14 on MX01. I'll just wait until the morning to remove the database - hopefully they will have replicated as I am visiting this clients site.

    PF is a waiting game :-(

    In 2013 should be better, as it uses native mbx replication now,but thats some time away.

    Yeah I read that the other day. I'm just wondering how many small businesses will move away from Exchange as it is no longer bundled within a Server Edition only the 365 connector. A lot of my small businesses I support don't want there mailbox data in the cloud.

    Oh well we can but see. Cheers Sukh!

    I assume you mean the next version of SBS right?
    On prem or the cloud are the options.

    yes but from what I have read Server 2012 Essentials (the new name SBS). Does not have exchange bundled in only a connector for Office 365. I'm not sure of the licensing costs of Exchange 2010/2013 for just a small number of users which may push people away from Exchange to cheaper alternatives (such as Zimbra) for those who do not want there data in the cloud.
