Last Modified: 2010-03-06
exchange 2003 - exchange 2003 replication from old hardware to new hardware.  everything looks good so far on the repliocation except my public folder calanders.  everything elso looks like it repicated good.  i am looking at the size and toltal items to ensure that all replicated and every number matches except my calanders.  i again right clicked and sent content from source to destination with 999 several time and still the numbers have not changed. everything else offline address book, schedule, free busy all look good.
with that the "event root" and "schema root" i dont remember reading about replicating that anywhere so that is not there either.

With system folder replication, some of the folders are unique to each server. The only ones you have to worry about are the folders mentioned in all the articles.

Has any content for those folders gone across?
Have you got message tracking enabled on the servers? I have seen AV software quarantine public folder content in the past.



rihgt, bu these calanders are not because they are aspecific to our orgianization.  i just do not want to loose data.

yes ther has been content for example our main calander has on server1
size         items
2653      5027

server2 the new one
2872      4956

my other calander objects are similar...i do have meesage tracking on, on both servers.  


all of my folders replication details are showing "in Sync" on the old server and "Local Modified" on the new one.  aside from the size differnces on teh calander objects, everything looks good from what i know ans can see.
