Public folder replication in Exchsrvr 2003

Is there a "Master" public folder anymore? I have a user who gets a completley different view of a public folder calendar then the rest of the users.

The Exchange system manager shows two servers in the replication tab of the folder and also shows the folder as synchronized.  I seem to remember a "master" in Exchange 2000.

1. Is the Master gone in 2003?
2. Does cached mode affect public folders?
3. Is there a way to force a user to look at the PF on one server vs. another?
4. Am I missing something else altogether?

Thanks, -P

Hi Orwellian23,

1. No, there is no master - they are all equal
2. It shouldn't, as the Public Folders are not cached - What may affect this is if the user is access this public folder via their "Pub Folder Favourites" which can be synched to the OST file.
3. The user will look at the Public Folder store of the server their mailbox is on
4. Not really :))

Hope that helps,

3. You can set a default public folder store on the properties of the Private Information Store.
Of course, you are correct.

I should have said;

3. The user will look at the Public Folder store of the server their mailbox is on by default.

MNH has given you a way to change that behaviour
