REHOMING Public Folders in Exchange 2003.
Posted on 2004-08-30
We have an Exchange 2003 server running SP1. Lets call this server1. THis server currently hosts our private store, public store, and smtp services.
Ther is only one exchange server performing all the tasks.
Since we are running out of disk space on server1 we decided to move the Public folders to a new server.
For this we setup a new Exchange 2003 server with SP1 (let"s call this server as SERVER2).We setup public folder replication between server1 and server2 which
works just fine. The entire public folder contents have been replicated succesfully.
WE have also setup server2 as a referral in the custom routing group on server1.
Now we want to remove the public folder from server1 and our clients running on outlook 2003 to automatically connect to server2 for their public folder resources.
We did try dismounting the public store on server1 and tried to open public folders in Outlook. Sadly it did not work .
WHAT DID WE DO WRONG HERE ?
THank You in advance...
