Public Folders replication status is Local Modified

We have an environment with Exchange 2000 and Exchange 2003. I recently added another Exchange 2003 server that I upgraded from Exchange 2000. Public folders on all servers are now showing Local Modified for the Replication Status of the majority of the folders. I have read through too many posts to mention to find the fix for this, and am not having any luck with getting the folders to show the "In Sync" status. Any advice or settings changes would be helpful! Thanks!

if the public folder size and number of items match then there is nothing to worry about.

They do not match between the server I upgraded and the server that I replicated folders from.


This issue entailed a call to Microsoft. The comment is true except for Public folders that are calendars. Calendars will almost never have the same item count. Go figure...


While the response did not cover the resolution to my entire issues it did answer the posted question. Thanks!
