We started the migration at corporate. We set up an active domain controller and started to migrate some test users. Public folders are not completely showing up. We have certificate authorities in active domain controller for public folders, and we have also tried pfmigrate.wsf. We can move the users back to the old Exchange 5.5 server, and they are able to see all of the public folders again. We also tried creating replicas in Exchange 5.5 System Manager to the Exchange 2003 server. Do you have any ideas?
If those two things don't help, I would further consider troubleshooting the issue by creating a new folder in the target environment to check if you can see any public folder data.
One last thought -- you could use the Exchange Server Best Practices Analyzer Tool to see if something in your target configuration could be modified.
