Some Exchange public folders not replicating to a new server RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello all,

    I am migrating Exchange 2003 SP2 server from one computer to another. I have installed Exchange on the new computer, now I have two servers in Exchange organization. I added public folder replicas using pfmigrate tool. Now I see that most of my public folders have replicated, but not all. Several folders have zero items on the new servers, while they have a lot of items on the old server. If in Exchange System Manager I try to "resend changes" or "synchronize content" I get the following error message:


    An internal processing error has occurred. Try restarting the Exchange System Manager or the Microsoft Exchange Information Store service, or both. Examine the Application Log for events related to this error. The description fields of these events will contain specific error codes and may contain links to Microsoft Knowledgebase articles on troubleshooting this problem.


    However, Application Log does not seem to contain any related events. Of course I tried to restart everything, but it didn't help.

    Any ideas? Thanks a lot!

  • Thank you, but my stores are mounted alright, so this doesn't seem to be a problem.


    It looks like I was able to resolve my problem in the following way. For each folder that did not replicate:

    - In Exchange System Manager, manually removed the new server from the Replication page of folder properties

    - waited until hierarchy replication message propagated

    - then re-added the new server replica manually

    - again waited until hierarchy replication message propagated

    - then forced replication by "Synchronize Content" context menu item in the "Status" pane for the folder.

    After that the content replicated.
