The only thing I can think of is to write a script that would do it, my
recommendation would be to post the question on the Microsoft Exchange
development newsgroup hosted by Microsoft and someone from there would be
able to answer your question.

  Subject: [exchangelist] Public Folder re-homing.

  We have put some new exchange servers in and I have had the IT staff here
busily changing the home server of all 900 Public folders to the new server,
one by one. I have never seen anything to do this automatically over the
years. I was caught out by the PFADMIN REHOME command which appears to strip
the replicas and not actually "re-home" the public folder.

  Is there anything out there to do this? I was thinking about a directory
import/export perhaps?
