Deleting public folder in Exchange 2010
Long story short, we're trying to uninstall a test version of Exchange 2010 so we can install a production version somewhere else. And the latest in a series of hurdles we need to jump is deleting the public folder store. We get this error when we try to delete the one and only solder store: The public folder database "Public Folder Database 1559829565" contains folder replicas. Before deleting the public folder database, remove the folders or move the replicas to another public folder database. For detailed instructions about how to remove a public folder database, see http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=81409&clcid=0x409. I see all sorts of help on this topic but it all seems to be for dismantling Exchange 2003 and 2007 ... 2010 has a different topology that doesn't apply.

Thanks for this, unfortunately this procedure isn't working for me. It still says there's replicas despite running that script. I think I'm going to start a microsoft support case for this.

Please check if there’s any replica on the exchange 2010 server Get-PublicFolder -Recurse | Ft -Wrap Name,Replicas Get-PublicFolder -Identity \NON_IPM_SUBTREE -Recurse | Ft -Wrap Name,Replicas Quote: “It still says there's replicas despite running that script” Which script do you try to use, MoveAllReplicas.ps1? Have you tried the cmdlet in this article, including the “ErrorAction” and “Server” parameter?James Luo TechNet Subscriber Support (http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/subscriptions/ms788697.aspx) If you have any feedback on our support, please contact email@example.com
