Public folder Replication issue RRS feed

  • Question

  • Good Day,

    I have a mixed Exchange 2003 and 2010 environment , with 4 sites , A,B,C,D.
    site A: Exchange 2010 aks-server5 (HUB,CAS) & aks-server4 (MB)
    site B: Exchange 2010 msc-server5 (HUB,CAS) & msc-server4 (MB)
    site C: Exchange 2003 server17 / Exchange 2010 pil-server5 (HUB,CAS) & pil-server4 (MB)
    Site D: Exchange 2003 aqaba-server3 

    on Site C the pil-server4 & pil-server5 are newly installed 

    on Server17 of site C there is a public folder DB , have created a PF Database on pil-server4 and added replica from folder on server17 to pil-server4. ( 24 hours ago)

    after this a huge traffic is being run between Site A & Site C , while monitoring , server17 is sending a lot of traffic to aks-server5 , it is a public folder replication , as if the replica was added to aks-server4 !!! while it is not !!!

    Any suggestion to figure out what is causing this , and to stop this huge traffic ...  

    Regards

  • Since traffic between 2003 and 2007/2010 requires a routing group connector I think it's a lot easier to ask how that configured. I'd guess he already knows which way the messages traverse the network.

    Adding another RGC with endpoints on server17 and pil-server5 would probably address the problem.

  • Where are the end points for the routing group connector that connects the Exchange 2003 routing group to the 2010 routing group?

  • Hi Elias,

    In order to figure out what causes this bottleneck of network, you would like to use netmon to capture the network traffic.

    Here is a reference for you:
