Result Pane Empty - Public folder database in Exchange 2010 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I recently tried to move the public folder database from an older exchange 2010 machine to newer exchange 2010 using the following

    .\MoveAllReplicas.ps1 -Server Server01 -NewServer Server02

    I guess some communication error occurred and now the public folder database on the new exchange2010 server is not appearing in the result pane.

    Just to clarify more: Whenever I try to click the public folder database under Organization config ----> Mailbox --- Default public folderdatabase

    The result pane shows,

    "There is no item to show in this view"

    I tried importing data using Ms-outlook which worked and now the database have the public folders data but the database is still not appearing into result pane.

    Any suggestion that how to repair the database so it start appearing in to the result pane again?

  • Yes, thats normal, the important is you should be able to access the Public Folder resources from the client. Which I am sure you are!

  • That's fine,  you don't have to worry about it as you will it in DAG (Cluster) and its not applicable to PF Database.
    You won't see any content here if you are trying to..

  • I don't have any DAG - The Exchange2010 was the old server which died and I was not able to remove it from AD before it dies.

    Before applying the following, I was able to see results in result pane

    .\MoveAllReplicas.ps1 -Server Server01 -NewServer Server02

  • In that screen shot i see two Public Folder database.
    Check in Adsiedit.msc...Configuration...>Services...>Microsoft Exchange...>ORG...>Administrative Group...>Exchange Admin Group...>Server (OLD Server) If you see that old server delete it.

    Delete the Old Public Folder Database also.

    Post the result
