    Tried to go c Exchange 2007 on a new Exchange server 2010 and was faced with removing public folder on exchange 2007, to address this problemypolzyvalsya instructions:


    -------------------------------------------------- -------------------------------------------------- ------

    Exchange 2007 - Uninstall Error - Public Folder Database
    While trying to uninstall Exchange 2007 you see the following error.

    "Uninstall cannot continue: Database 'Public Folder Database': The public folder database" server name \ storage group \ database "contains folder replicas. Before deleting the public folder database remove the folders or remove the replicas to another public folder database."


    WARNINIG: The following procedure assumes you want the Public Folders GONE - make sure any information you require within them is either backed up or moved to another server.
    1. Click Start> All Programs> Microsoft Exchange Server 2007> Exchange Management Shell.

    2. Issue the following command, (Replace {name of server} with your own server name).

    Get-PublicFolder-Server {name of server} "\"-Recurse-ResultSize: Unlimited | Remove-PublicFolder-Server {name of server}-Recurse-ErrorAction: SilentlyContinue

    3. Enter Y for yes if Prompted. (Enter your own server name).

    6. Re-attempt the uninstall.

    or in EXTREME situations (sometimes it refuses to delete no matter what you do) run ADSIedit and remove it from CN = Configuration, CN = Services, CN = Microsoft Exchange, CN = {organisation name ie First Organisation}, CN = Administrative Groups, CN = {Administrative Group name}, CN = Servers, CN = {servername}, CN = Information Store, CN = {Storage Group Name}, CN = {Public Folder Database Name} THEN REBOOT

    -------------------------------------------------- -------------------------------------------------- -----------------------------

    As a result of the operation, I lost a tree katologov public folder throughout the domain, ie now I can not see not a single server exchange "Public folder".

    I suspect this method was izmenina scheme of Active directory.

    How can I correctly restore directory tree having a public folder database on the Server exchange 2010 and a copy of the System date of DC (Active directory on windows server 2008 sp2) made by Symantec Backup???

    I would like to know more about repairing the steps.

    Thanks ...
