We recently upgraded from exchange 5.5 to exchange 2003.
This have left us with a ghost public folder. We cannot access the folder via outlook.
In Exchange system manager the folder is only visible in "Public folder instances"
When we try to "remove Replica" we get the error: Can not remove the selected replica(s) because a public folder must have at least one replica. ID no: c1038a26

Any help would be appreciated.

On your IIS Manager, make sure your default website is enabled and pointed to port 80.  Exchange is very picky about what specific port it needs to get the public folder working.

The default website is set to port 80 and is running.
But outlook web access doesn't work either, we just get square boxes where the buttons should be.

Are your AD admin tools letting you down?

Managing Active Directory can get complicated.  Often, the native tools for managing AD are just not up to the task.  The largest Active Directory installations in the world have relied on one tool to manage their day-to-day administration tasks: Hyena. Start your trial today.

ok if ghost public folder is not visible in ur ADSIedit then what u can do is to pst all
ur public folders using outlook and then delete ur pub1  edb and stm files in ur
MDBDATA folder and start with a fresh new database and then import ur data back
and see if ur problem with the ghost is solved.
