Exchange 2003 Public Folder server query RRS feed

  • Question


  • We are running Exchange 2003 SP2 and have dedicated Public Folder servers in each major site.

    In Site A, this PF server is behaving erratically and is going up and down.

    I want users to use a PF server in another site to access PF data.

    Does anyone know how I can accomplish this?

  • Unless you have specifically configured Exchange not to allow this, Exchange should automatically reach across the WAN and access a public folder in another site. There is a property on the Routing Group Connectors that allows you to prohibit public folders across the WAN.

    1. See this for understanding or referrals - http://support.microsoft.com/kb/273479 and configure on you connectors,
    2. Also, consider addressing the issue your having with this PF server, check event logs, run the exchbpa, havent really mentioned what the actual issue is, if you have a plan then good.

  • Hi Paul,

    Above gave some good suggestion, how about to make some tests.
    Per your description, the public folder server seems have some issue, you could confirm the exact causes. Such as event log and so on; 
    In my opinion, it seems a OS issue.
    Or, you could remove it and recreate a new one, it is better to keep one public replicas on each site.

    Regards!
