Hi,

I'm trying to uninstall one of our 2007 Servers (just migrated over to a new box) and am receiving teh following when removing the Mailbox Role:

Mailbox Role Prerequisites
Failed
Error:
Uninstall cannot continue. Database 'Public Folder Database (Server1)': The public folder database that you specified is in use by a mailbox database. Mailbox database: Mailbox Database.
Recommended Action: http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=30939&l=en&v=ExBPA.3&id=b6e3b32a-8848-46cb-9567-72288ac15f60

I cannot delete the Public Folder (same error) but cannot see anything that could be using it.

Any thoughts would be appreciated as I'm completely stumped with this.

Thanks

Kelvin

Hi,

I've followed both of those, and still no joy.

Listed below is the output from Get-PublicFolder (IPM and NON_IPM) and  Get-PublicFolderStatistics.
The server to be removed is SRV-MAIL, the new (replacement server) is SRV-EXCH07-01.

As an update, I've just checked where our Outlook clients are connecting (HTTP over RPC) and they are showing the old server for Public Folder (new for everything else).
At a guess, this could be what is 'holding the PF open' but I have no idea why the PF connection has not moved over to the other server (PF list on the client shows no folders).

Any thoughts??

Thanks
