I was uninstalling an Exchange 2007 server from an organization which had Exchange 2007 & 2010 co-existence when I received this error message.

I had moved all the public folder replicas to the 2010 server using the “MoveAllReplicas.ps1” script in the Exchange Scripts folder. Running Get-PublicFolderStatistics –Server “2007server” returned nothing. PF replication was stopped as well.

I tried removing the 2007 public folder by running Remove-PublicFolder –identity “2007serverstorage grouppublic folder database”, but the command failed on both on 2007 and 2010 server.

The solution was to remove the 2007 public folder database using ADSIEdit. I launched ADSIEdit and connected to the “Configuration” container. Navigated to “Services –> Microsoft Exchange –> Org Name –> Administrative Groups –> Group Name –> Servers –> 2007servername –> Information Store –> Storage Group”

ADSIEdit

Right clicked the “2007 Public Folder Database” and selected “Delete”. Waited for the replication to happen & the uninstall ran successfully.

    I have resolved using EMS from Exchange 2010.

    Get-PublicFolderDatabase -Server EX2007 | remove-PublicFolderdatabase

    Bye!

      You mean Powershell not EMS.
      Run this on the Exchange 2010 server powershell. No need for ADSIEDIT but that works too.
