Free/Busy will not publish for some users on a store

Here is my problem in a nutshell.

New site 2 Exchange 2003 Servers, first installed Exchange 2003 server is now a FE server, the other is a Mailbox Server.  IISADMPWD was enabled on the FE server via a virtual directory under the default web site, not enabled through OWA .. after the SSL was added public folder access no longer existed .. The cert was forced on the IP address with a different FQDN (removed from forced at IP address, and disabled force SSL on ExAdmin) after this, the problem of accessing the Public Folders was resolved.

However, unless a user had previously published free/busy to the Sched+ folder, they cannot do so now.  /cleanfreebusy does not work, but if I create a new user on the store on MB server, this new user works.

UpdateFB.exe  ??  is this my only option aside from rebuilding the system folders?

Please someone help with a potential explanation with what happened!?!  How to resolve the least intrusive method available.

thank you in advance .. and I promise I will be more faithful and answer more questions.

ummm, yes the site folder server is on the FE serrver, but this should not matter, correct? both servers at present have a replica of Sched+ .. but this would only cause potential corruption .. with both folders off . .still same issue.

If the first server was a frontend, I would look at moving everything to the backend.

The folders you need to move are listed in this article (which is about removing the server, but you can ignore that).

Is the frontend receiving SMTP email or is it an OWA only frontend?

Free/Busy has picked up, I created some new appointments and it is updating on those users ..

It seems as though publishing old date is not happening, and that, I suppose, makes sense to me, MadFB tried to publish data, but couldn't communicate with the store, now whenever we create a new item only then does it initiate a publish through MadFB .. ??  I am pretty sure I did read that somewhere today.

I couldn't agree with you more on the Exchange Article, but a great many others do not share our concerns

THANK YOU for your expedient reply.
