Moving an Exchange Server public folder replica to another server

Find out the steps necessary to move one Exchange public folder replica to another server.

Q: How do you change ownership of an Exchange Server public folder in an enterprise from one Exchange server to...


A: I'm assuming from your question that you're trying to move an Exchange Server public folder replica from one Exchange server to another. If that's the case, then go into the public folder's properties from within Exchange System Manager (ESM) -- assuming you're running Exchange 2000 or Exchange 2003 -- and add a replica for the new Exchange server. Then wait for replication to complete. Once you've confirmed this, you can delete the original Exchange Server public folder replica.
