Deleted Public Folder Directory - 3.Apr.2007 5:23:11 PM

During the installation of our 2007 Exchange Cluster I decided to make a change and tried to remove the public folder storage group with no success. I then decided to keep the setup but had already deleted the Public Folder folder on the server, not the Storage Group as it wouldn't let me. Well, we have 2 Exchange 2003 servers and now I can't sync which creates a problem with Outlook 2003 users seeing free/busy when their mailboxes are on 2007. Is there any way to recreate the Public Folder on the Exchange 2007? BTW, Exchange 2007 already built a new directory stucture, just doesn't communicate with 2003.

When I moved the public storage group, I had to duplicate it, dismount it and then "move" it using the -ConfigurationOnly switch in the Exchange Shell. I was then able to move it to the clustered drive and mount the directory. If you deleted the public storage group and need to recreate it, you will need to use the Shell CLI to move and create the new database. This is the command to move and/or create "move-DatabasePath -Identity 'Exchange\Second Storage Group\Public Folder Database' -EdbFilePath 'E:\Program Files\Exchange Server\Mailbox\Second Storage Group\Public Folder Database.edb'-ConfigurationOnly" in the shell

Thanks Chris. I actually worked with Microsoft just yesterday to resolve the issue. The problem ended up that the Exchange 2007 public folder tried to tie itsef to an orphaned object, creating a second MAPI tree. We finally found the object, deleted it, created a new public folder and all was well. After that it was a matter of setting up the replication.
