How to Remove Public Folder Replicas? - 9.Sep.2006 10:31:54 PM

I have a two Server Exchange 2007 Beta 2 setup and I am now trying to eliminate the first server. I've moved mailboxes, address book defaults, etc. and created a new public message database on the second server. However, I am unable to remove the Public Message Database on the first server. Every time I try, I get the error:

   The public folder database specified contains folder replicas.
   Before deleting the public folder database, remove the folders
   or move the replicas to another public folder database.

The public folder database has no Public Folders in it - it is completely empty. I've set replication to "Never" but I still get this error. The UI does not expose the replica list and the set-PublicFolder command does not have a provision for having an empty parameter for the -Replicas switch. 

I can't just simply delete the database itself since then the Exchange Uninstall will fail the pre-checks and won't uninstall and I need the roles removed, etc. from the registry.

Any help on this would be greatly appreciated.

What about the System Public folders, have they been replicated across?
