Dial Tone Recovery 2013 Public Folders RRS feed

  • Question

  • We have a corrupt mailbox database and have started a dial tone recovery. We've rehomed all of the users and they can send and receive emails, however, how do we do this with the Public Folders?

  • Thanks. I've looked at this but don't see where it would allow us to create the hierarchy with out a database. It seems to depend on a recovery. Can the hierarchy and email addresses be "rehomed" like the email boxes are in dial tome recovery just to get mail flowing again.

    So if you used the dial tone procedure, what you would do, is recover the mailbox database that the PF hierarchy is in to a recovery database just like a mailbox database recovery. Then you need to swap the databases and merge just like the mailbox dial tone requirement.

    Your only option is to restore the mailbox database that contains the PF hierarchy mailbox from backup if the mailbox itself is damaged and not recoverable in any other way.
