Exchange 2010 Public folder redirection issue RRS feed

  • Question

  • I had 2 exch 2003 servers, different admin groups, different domains.  I added an exch 2010 server to (soon) replace 1<sup>st</sup> 2003 exch server.  All was fine.  Weeks later, add the 2<sup>nd</sup> exch 2010 server to different domain, and it went well, I thought. 

    Problem, my second Exch2010 server Public folder in domain B, is pointing to my first Exch 2003 PF domain A.  If I dismount my Exch2003 svr in domain A, Domain B exch 2010 mailbox users have no PFs

    My problem is that the mailbox users can’t access the local PF on the exch 2010 server.

    When I setup the PF replication on the 1<sup>st</sup> exch 2010 server, I ran PFDAVAdmin on the 2003 svr and repl to the new 2010 svr, no problems I think.

    When I setup the PF replication on the 2<sup>nd</sup>  exch 2010 server, I ran PFDAVAdmin on the 1<sup>st</sup> 2003 svr and repl to the new 2010 svr and it didn’t work.  I got a msExchOwningPFTreeBL error.  So I used Exchange Manger on the 1<sup>st</sup> exch 2003 server and setup replication that way.  I did see the Public folder DB file grow to size, but the clients on that exchange server don’t access it.

    How do I change the setup so that users on the 2<sup>nd</sup> mailbox server use it’s own public folder…?

    NOTE both exch 2010 svr hold the mailbox, hub, and client roles.  No UM or edge exch svrs.
