    Hi,

    I have the two public folder files from a 2000 sbs exchange server in the
    form pub1.stm and pub1.edb.

    I need to extract a diary and contacts list from the old system into an
    existing running 2003 exchange sbs installation - i think pfmigrate imports
    the
    whole public folder into the new one which i cant do as there are existing
    folders in place with the same names.

    Can anyone help?

    Thanks

    Wesley

    Hi Wesley,

    Thanks for your posting here.

    According to your description, I understand you want to migrate diary and
    contacts list from exchange2000 to SBS 2003 server. If I have misunderstood
    your concern, please feel free to let me know.

    First, please understand an Exchange store, of either type, is physically
    held in two files:
    " EDB - Also known as the rich text store. Information in here is stored in
    compressed rich text format as MAPI properties.

    " STM - Also known as the streaming file. Information in here is stored in
    its native format without conversion.

    It is important to note that these two files are inseparable and
    intrinsically linked; they must be treated as one. You cannot recover a
    database unless you have both files.

    Then there are several methods to migrate public folder.

    Please first verify if the souce Exchange server and distinction Exchange
    server are in the same organization or not.

    If they are in the same org, you can just rehome the rehome public folders
    using these steps:

    1. Start Exchange System Manager, click Folders, and then click Public
    Folders.
    2. Right-click a top-level public folder, and then click Properties.
    3. Click the Replication tab, click Add, and then add a replica to the
    target server where you want the folder rehomed.
    4. Click Apply, and then click OK.
    5. Right-click the same top-level public folder, click All Tasks, and then
    click Propagate Settings.
    6. Click to select the Replicas check box, and then click OK.

    When you complete this step, all subfolders of that top-level folder have
    a replica on the target server.
    7. Repeat steps 1 through 6 for all top-level folders and subfolders that
    you want to rehome.
    8. After replicas have been made on the target server, allow ample time
    for replication to occur.

    By default, public folder replication messages are low priority. To verify
    the replication status of any folder, right-click the folder in Exchange
    System Manager, clickProperties, click the Replication tab, and then click
    Details.
    9. To remove the public folder replicas from the source server, repeat
    steps 1 through 6, but click Remove instead of Add in step

    3.

    More info, refer to the following article:
    288150 XADM: How to Rehome Public Folders in Exchange 2000
    http://support.microsoft.com/?id=288150

    At the other hand, if the two servers are in the separate domain, you may
    use one of the following methods:

    Mothod 1: Using Export\Import wizard in Outlook
    ==================================

    1. Open Outlook and logon to the old Exchange server with a user account
    that can access all public folders. Copy all public folders you want to
    rehome to a PST file.

    2. Open Outlook and logon to new Exchange server with a user account that
    has full access to the public folders. Import the PST file to public
    folders on distinction Exchange server.

    Mothod 2: Using InterOrg Replication Utility
    ===============================

    Use interorg to configure the public folder replication between two
    servers. To use interorg utility, we need to configure the original
    Exchange server as the publisher and configure the distinction Exchange
    server as the subscriber. Install Interorg services on the server boxes.
    Download the utility for Exchange 2003 from the link:
    http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyId=E7A951D7-1559-4F8F-
    B400-488B0C52430E&displaylang=en

    Please read the following KB article for the detailed steps:
    238573 XADM: Installing, Configuring, and Using the InterOrg Replication
    Utility
    http://support.microsoft.com/?id=238573

    238642 XADM: Troubleshooting the InterOrg Replication Utility
    http://support.microsoft.com/?id=238642

    In addition, please refer to following article to prevent permission
    problems When You Migrate Public Folders
    KB328287
    http://support.microsoft.com/?id=328287

    Please post back to let me know if you have other concerns or need anything
    else. Thanks and have a nice day!
