Selecting Multiple Public Folders in Exchange 2003 Standard for Replication

jmoney68 asked
Last Modified: 2006-11-18
I want to replicate all of the public folders from the master server in my Exchange 2003 site to another Exchange server in the same site.  My question is, is there anyway to select multiple public folders for replication rather doing them one-by-one?  I have several hundred folders that I want to replicate and cannot see doing them one at a time.  I was trying figure out a way to do this other using PFMIGRATE.

Thanks in advance

If you are using Exchange 2003 SP2 then you can propagate down the replication settings.
Unfortunately you have to set this at the top level for each folder - so if you have 30 top level folders then you will need to set it on each folder.



I have SP2 on both servers already, however when I go to any of the top level folders in the Public Store, right-click and go into properties to set replication in Exchange Manager I do not see an option for propagation to sub-folders
