Resolution

fact
Exchange Migrator 2.x

symptom
Exchange Migrator migrates public folders to the root of the target Exchange Org.

symptom
Public Folders not being migrated to the correct root folder in the target Org.

cause

Exchange Migrator will only migrate Public Folders to the root of the Public Folder hierarchy on the target Exchange Organization.  This MAPI Public Folder tree is setup by default when Exchange gets installed into the target Exchange Organization.



fix

To migrate Public Folders to a specific public folder in the target Organization:

  1. Migrate the public folder to the target Exchange Organization using Exchange Migrator.
  2. Move the folder structure under the desired root folder in the target organization.
  3. Update the MigrationInfo table of the EMA database to reflect the correct path for the target folder's location.
  4. Update the MigrationInfo table to reflect the correct target path of the migrated public folders using a tool like SQL Query Analyzer or OSQL. For example:

     Update MigrationInfo Set TargetDisplayName = 'RootFolder\PFDisplayname' TargetContainer = 'RootFolder\PFDisplayname' TargetAlias = 'RootFOlder\PFDisplayname' where TargetObjectType = '2'

Use caution when changing the table. An error might cause data corruption.
