Public Folder Replication Errors

I am receiveing
the following event once daily on all public folder replica servers. They are all Exchange 2003.

Event Type:     Warning
Event Source:     MSExchangeIS Public Store
Event Category:     Replication Errors
Event ID:     3090
Description:
Error 0x80004005 occurred while processing an incoming replication message.

I turned on replication logging. It looks like public folders are replicating. I did notice that the SiteFolderServer is not correct but would that cause this error?

I have seen antivirus applications cause that. It is probably coughing over one particular folder or item which is why are you are only seeing it once a day.

Can you see which folder is triggering the message?

Otherwise, make sure that your AV is configured correctly. It should be excluding /exchsrvr and its sub directories for on access and on demand/scheduled scans.

AV is excluding the /exchsrvr and all subdirectories. It is only configured to scan once a week currently. The stange thing is that the error occurs on all replica servers once daily but each day it increments by 5 minutes.

That is odd.
The problem is, without knowing which folder is triggering the message, it is difficult to go much further.
It might just be a corrupt attachment or similar in a single folder that the replication system doesn't like - perhaps in a folder that doesn't change very often.

Do you think isinteg would help?

I don't like to run that tool unless I have to. If something goes wrong you loose the database.
Plus, do you know which database you would run the tool on?

That is a good question. I see the replication errors on all replica servers but not on the master. No offline maintenance has ever been run on any of the servers.

If you see the errors on all the replicas, then that would tend to indicate that the problem item is on the master public folder store.
You might get lucky and spot the likely folder by doing an item count comparison. However that is going to be a fishing trip.
I am pretty positive that it is just one single item causing the error, but how to find that item... do the replication logs not give you any clue as to what the error is?

This article says they are harmless...

But it is for Exchange 5.0!

Are you trying to replicate GlobalEvents? I am almost positive that isn't a folder that needs to be replicated to the other servers - I think it is unique folder on each server and doesn't have to replicated.

Yes it is set to replicate the entire public folder store.

You don't have to replicate everything.
The only things that you have to replicate are the content folders and certain system folders. Some of the system folders are unique to every server and shouldn't be replicated.
