Hi this did not work for my error code rakeshmiglani.

Error ID number: c1030af4
Error Message

Facility: Exchange System Manager
The operation failed because of an HTTP error 502
Possible Causes
• The exadmin virtual directory local path has a trailing backslash (\) in the path such as the following \\.\BackOfficeStorage

Troubleshooting

• Remove the trailing backslash for the virtual directory properties in IIS and then refresh ESM.

I have reloaded the MDAC following Microsoft instructions I had no errors on install all relevant services where shut down.
I have deleted the public folder databases and recreated them. I have also recreated the system files using ADSI.edit

Same Error 405

There is no documentation that I can find on this error with windows 2003 server running exchange 2003 only exchange 2003 on windows 2000 server.
The 2000 server documentation led me to reinstall MDAC.

Just a bit more info for you when I ignore the message and try and create a public folder I get this error.

This name is already used. Select another name.
ID no: 80040e98
Exchange System Manager

Now the name is not used as I called it 3204909rllllllllld

Also there is no documentation on this error that I can find.

I am at a loss any help please.

OK this is what has Fixed it for me

a.  Download and install the IIS 6.0 Resource Kit Tools. To obtain the IIS 6.0 Resource Kit Tools, visit the following Microsoft Web site:
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=56FC92EE-A71A-4C73-B628-ADE 629C89499&displaylang=en (http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=56FC92EE-A71A-4C73-B628-ADE629C89499&displaylang=en)
If you do not want to install all the IIS 6.0 Resource Kit Tools, click the Custom installation option to install only Metabase Explorer 1.6.
b.  Start IIS Manager.
c.  Back up the metabase. To do this, right-click Default Web Site, click All Tasks, and then click Save Configuration to a File. Type a filename for the file and click OK.
d.  Expand Default Web Site, and then delete the following virtual directories: • Microsoft-Server-ActiveSync
• OMA
• Exadmin
• Exchange
• Public
• ExchWeb
 
e.  Start Metabase Explorer. To do this, click Start, point to All Programs, point to IIS Resources, point to Metabase Explorer, and then click Metabase Explorer.
f.  Expand the LM key, right-click the DS2MB key, and then click Delete.  
g.  Close Metabase Explorer.  
h.  Restart the Microsoft Exchange System Attendant service to re-create the virtual directories in IIS.

Note If the virtual directories are not re-created after 15 minutes, restart the server.
i.  In IIS Manager, expand Default Web Site, right-click Exchweb, and then click Properties.
j.  Click the Directory Security tab, and then click Edit under Authentication and access control.
k.  Verify that only the Enable anonymous access check box is selected.
l.  Right-click Default Web Site, and then click Stop.
m.  Right-click Default Web Site, and then click Start.
