Unable to access Organizational Forms Library from Outlook client.

Hi Experts,
Wondering if someone can help me out.

I have been able to create OFL serveral times before at different organizations without any issues. However, couple days ago I was at this particular organization and I went through my usual routines and created a new OFL (They didn't have one setup). Steps I went through:

1. Opened up ESM, browse to EFORMS Registry, added a new OFL.
2. Went Properties of the OFL and assigned proper Client Permissions

However, when I go back onto Outlook for reason I can't seem to find the OFL!! Usually, when if go to Properties of any folder | Forms tab | click Manage | click Set | in the popup window, in the dropdown I should be able to see the new OFL. But this time I can't! The only one that is available is the "Peronal Forms".....


- They are running Exchange 2003 Cluster.
- The OFL is not explicitly being replicated anywhere.
- However, they do have a dedicated Exch-DR server which "in theory" replicate the everything.
- I never had to do this before but I even try make sure my account has full Administrator Rights but still no luck. (Properties on OFL | Permissions Tab | Administrator Rights)

Any help on this will be very much appreciated!!

    I#m not a cluster expert, but have you tried to enabled replication to the local machine? Are all the other system folders replicated to the local machine?

    Sorry, I am not sure what you mean by "enable replication to the local machine".  What I can tell you is that the OFL is created on the Exch server where my mailbox resides.

    - The OFL is not explicitly being replicated anywhere. <----

    I mean the replication of the system folders. All folders have to been replicated to the local machine to be visible.

    Goto ESM - Administrative Groups - Folders - Public Folders
    Right klick Public folders and select Show "system folders"
    --> EForms Registry - Global forms
    --> right cklick - properties - replication
