I have migrated our exchange server from our old mail server to our new one. However after running Microsoft's Exchange Server Best Practices Analyzer, we are getting a error that our Site Folder Server was deleted. After reading the fix from Microsoft below:

http://www.microsoft.com/technet/prodtechnol/exchange/Analyzer/4a057fc7-fbaf-4863-9675-318d5d0139f0.mspx?mfr=true

However when I drill all the down to:
 
CN=Configuration,DC=<DomainName>,DC=com, CN=Services, CN=Microsoft Exchange, CN=<OrganizationName>, CN=Administrative Groups, CN=<AdministrativeGroupName> CN=Servers, CN=<ServerName>, CN=InformationStore, CN=<StorageGroupName>

I looked for a attribute called:

siteFolderServer

But there is no such variable showing on the list. But the distinguishedName was available.

QUESTION:

If there isn't a attribute, what actions should I take to create it. Or what should I install or configure so the attribute is there?

The location that you have checked is not correct. Check the "sitefolderserver" attribute on the administrative group proeprties. the path is :

CN=Configuration,CN=<DomainName>,CN=com, CN=Services, CN=Microsoft Exchange, CN=<OrganizationName>, CN=Administrative Groups

When I looked in the path you gave me:

CN=Configuration,CN=<DomainName>,CN=com, CN=Services, CN=Microsoft Exchange, CN=<OrganizationName>, CN=Administrative Groups

 I couldn’t find the variable siteFolderServer. However I drilled down one further to CN=First Administrative Group and checked it’s properties, I found the variable siteFolderServer. Is that the one I would need to edit the sitefolderserver value to make it the same as the distinguishedname value within
the CN=First Administrative Group?

In other words I am going to copy the value:

CN=First Administrative Group,CN=Administrative Groups,CN=<DOMAINNAME>,CN=Microsoft Exchange,CN=Services,CN=Configuration,DC=<domainname>,DC=com

From the distinguished name in CN=First Administrative Group and paste it into the SiteFolderServer value in CN=First Administrative?

I hope this is clear enough.

is the "sitefolderserver" attribute on CN=First Administrative Group pointing to a valid exchange server?

if not then this is the attribute that you need to change.

the following article has the details steps on what you need to copy and paste.
