Hello,
I was wondering if someone can help or guide me on how to remove my
last exchange 5.5. We have successfully moved all the mailboxes,
connectors to the E2k3. I didn't used pfmigrate tool since I didn't
had any public folder in old exchange. Therefore I just opened each
system folders and added the E2k3 server in the replication.
After everything was in-sync, I removed the old Exchange 5 from the
replication from each system folders in Public folders replication tab.
After everything was running fine, I decided to remove Exchange 5.5
from my site since there is nothing in there.
After stopping the services and tried to delete it, I got an error
that there is a folder in the public folder. After doing some investigation,
i found there was some hidden folder in the public folder
which was created back in 1998.

Right now I cannot open the public folders in exchange 5.5 admin because I get an error: The attempt to log on to the MS Exchange Server computer has failed.

MS Exchange Server Information Store

In E2k3, I cannot see this folder at all. After doing some search on Google, etc.
I came across this article.
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/152433/en-us

Right now, there is still directoy replication and ADC connectors between E2k3 box and Exchange 5.5  I'd like to elminate this old exchange.  Should i follow the article and run DS/IS consistency on public folders? I am not planning to join sites again, or anything.  If I run the DS/IS consistency, will there be any harm to schedule free busy folder and offline address book folders?  All the necessary system folders are already home in the exchange 2003 box.

Thanks
Shane
