Event id 14029 | source: MSExchangeMailboxAssistants


  • Hello,

    Currently we have the following environment:

    • 1 Exchange 2003 server
    • 2 Exchange 2010 servers

    All mailboxes are already moved to Exchange 2010 and every public folder has a replica on Exchange 2010.

    Still we are having the following event id logged every 15 minutes:

    Event id 14029 | source: MSExchangeMailboxAssistants

    • Couldn't find an Exchange 2010 or later public folder server with a replica for the free/busy folder: EX:/O=V.Z.W. SINT-ANDRIESZIEKENHUIS/OU=ExchangeOrg.


    However I'm 100 % sure there is a replica on both Exchange 2010 servers for this folder AND I can see that this folder contains all the items on Exchange 2010.
    We have Outlook 2003 and 2010 users but none of them are having free-busy issues.

    How can I get rid of this errors?
    Can I decommission the Exchange 2003 environment without risk?

    Thx in advance!

    Kind regards, Mike

  • First, get rid of that error (if possible). What happens if you restart the Information Store? Sometimes it is as easy as that:

    net stop MSExchangeIS && net start MSExchangeIS

    Caution: Mail will be unavailable during the restart.

  • I agree with Jon-Alfred, its better to get rid of the error message.

    Run this in EMS and make sure you have a replica:
    get-publicfolder -Identity "\NON_IPM_SUBTREE\SCHEDULE+ FREE BUSY" -Recurse | fl name,Replicas
