Can't you just create a replica on the new server(s). Allow the
replication to complete and then delete the original replica ?

        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?
