Exchange 2007 sp2 Public Folder: WARNING: Name is too long: maximum length is 127, actual length is ... RRS feed

  • Question

  • We migrate from Exchange 2003 SP2 to 2007 SP2 in a new Exchange organization. Public Folders are migrated and synchronized by QUEST migration manager for Exchange 8.5. When I have a look at the folders on the target Exchange 2007 folder via EMS I get for many folders this error.

    EMS command => Get-PublicFolder -identity \gl -recurse (by the way: the EMS command is very, very slow...?)

    WARNING: Object \GL\[loooongFolderName]
    WARNING: Name is too long: maximum length is 127, actual length is 129.

    Any ideas?

    Is this a problem? I didn't found anything relating to this error on microsoft.com respectively in the www.

    Regards

  • The warning you saw, is because a hard limit on the number of characters that are allowed in the name, and they are exceeded. These folders need to be consolidated

  • As I know, it could cause public folder replication issue, so please monitor the statistics among the replicas of the public folders, and ensure they are consistent
