Free/Busy Info and OAB

Hi,

I have recently upgraded from Exchange 2000 to Exchange 2007, i managed to get all of the mailboxes transferred but did lose some of the public folders. I have accepted defeat there and am now trying to iron out some of the errors i am still getting. One error is to do with the Free/Busy schedules which looks like it is still situated on the old server but they physically no longer exist on that server. I cannot change or delete the folders from Exchange 07 because it tries to contact the folders on the Exchange 2000 server, they arent there. Is there any way for me to remove the Free/Busy and the OAB from Exchange 07 and recreate them?

When i go into Exchange System Manager > Public Folder Management > System Public Folers > Offline Address Book it reports as being here:

/o=HALCOMMS/cn=addrlists/cn=oabs/cn=Default Offline Address List

Halcomms is the old server, not the new server.

Clicking delete gives the following:

--------------------------------------------------------
Microsoft Exchange Error
--------------------------------------------------------
Action 'Remove' could not be performed on object '/o=HALCOMMS/cn=addrlists/cn=oabs/cn=Default Offline Address List'.

/o=HALCOMMS/cn=addrlists/cn=oabs/cn=Default Offline Address List

so you have not de-commissioned yet
try to open the ESM on the 2000 server and drill down to system folders
open the free/busy folder and then add the 2007 server

yes, add the 2007 server there
do the same for the OAB as well
then wait for some time for the changes and data to replicate
after that check at the client. free/busy should work fine.

shutdown the 2000 server for few days. if the user's don't report any issues then you are safe to remove the old server.

When looking in ESM on the 2000 machine this morning it still says that the 2000 exchange is in sync but the 2007 exchange is local modified.

I am still unable to remove the OAB via 2007, they have not replicated?

That is about OAB. Is the free/busy working fine?
Is the OAB server pointing to the exchange 2000 server or the 2007 server?
if you do a reduild of the OAB, do you get any errors in the app logs?
Did you also configure replication for the OAB folders from the exchange 2000 system manager?

The Free/Busy is also not working, i have configured replication but did read somewhere that both servers should be in sync for it to work, at the mo the Ex07 is in "Local Modified".

Where and how can i rebuild the OAB? Should i rebuild on the Ex00 or the Ex07 server.

The OAB folder is currently pointing to the Ex00 folder but we cannot edit or remove it becuase of the following which is an error from the Ex07 (HALCOMM) server when trying to remove the OAB folder, the Ex00 server is (HALCOMMS):

--------------------------------------------------------

you need to first check if the OAB is pointing to the old server or the new server
if it is on the old server then you can point it to the new server via the esm on the old server
are all your clients outlook 2007 or a mix of 2000,2003 and 2007?

to change the oab from the old server to the new server, you need to change the oab server from exchange 2000 to exchange 2007.
open esm
expand recipients
expand offline address lists
on the right hand side, you would see the oab listed
check its properties to see if it is on the old server or the new server

do you have a public folder store configured on the 2007 server?
also when configuring the replication of the system folders, did you also configure the replication on the oab version folders?

Hmmm, I expanded Offline Address Lists and nothing has appeared, this may be the root of the problem. They are definately pointing towards the old server but they do not exist on it - could this be causing the error?

I have public folders on my Ex07 server, it is just the Free/Busy and OAB that did not go across properley.

I configured replication on all of the folders that were listed.

I think there may be some sort of corruption?

Ok - Nothing is under the folder you highlighted - there was a default OAB but i deleted this the other day when trying to get rid of all of the folders, i can recreate one if needed.

There is no OAB in the Exchange 07 either, not under that specified folder.

since all the users are now on the 2007 server, the OAB needs to be created on the 2007 server.
Also the configuration needs to be done for older Outlook clients.

Do and update on the newly created OAB so that it is generated. also check the app log to make sure that it did not fail
if everything goes out fine, then users should not get any OAB errors in outlook.

It looks like it worked, i got one error in the app log which is apparently normal

OALGen failed to find the OAB version 4 manifest file '\\HALCOMM\ExchangeOAB\e8f59abc-9198-44c6-ba37-ef41e9de8f96\oab.xml'. This is normal if it is the first time this offline address list has been published to the file system

But clients are still having problems. I would also like to remove those others, can they just be deleted from the Exchange 00 system or will this not make them disappear on the Exchange 07 system?

don't delete them. they would not do any harm or interfere with exchange. you can remove the 2007 servername from the replication tab of the old oab folders as now we have a new oab on the server.
are the clients not able to download the oab.

these tree are the defaul OAB folders and should be present for OAB for work fine. earlier we were missing these folders but after OAB has been configured these folders have appeared. These folders hold the OAB data.
halcomms is the name of your exchange ORG.
it is just a coincidence that your old server and ORG names are the same.

the free/busy data is stored in the free/busy system folder in the public folder database.
this data cannot be viewed from the exchange server however when users check their calendars to schedule meetings/appointments, the free/busy data is pulled from this system folder.

thanks for the update about the OAB.

the value seems to be correct as both the servers are in different administrative groups.
can you check the same value on the exchange 2007 administrative group and let me know if it is pointing to the public folder store on the 2007 server?

if you see the attached screenshots, it appears that both the administrative groups have different free/busy folders

did you follow the steps mentioned in http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb124350.aspx to install Exchange 2007 in the existing Exchange 2000 setup?

I suspect the issue to be that the free/busy folder which has the details is not replicating over to the 2007 server.
This can also be due to mail flow issues between the two servers.
Can you create a new mailbox on the exchange 2000 server and then try to send email to the users on the exchange 2007 and let me know if the mail flow works fine?

just make sure that you read the complete article before making any changes.
i would also suggest that you take a exchange backup and a system state backup before doing anything.

Unfortunately there was a different error taking up all of the log, nothing to do with the exchange issues, from another program we use. Should i try the above steps again?

can you create a new mailbox on the new server and then check if the new mailbox is able to publish free/busy information?
also can you send a test invite to multiple users and ask them to accept it so that the free/busy is published in the new free/busy system folder?

I have tried to add the test user but they are not showing up in the directory for all of the other users yet. I added users the other day and they have appeared so this might just take some time.

I sent a meeting request from my inbox and had multiple users accept, when i went back in i could still not see the free busy data?

And the RUS problem is because the Receipient Update Service is on an Exchange 07 server, we only plan one exchange server to be in the forest so i cannot move it to another Exchange, what can i do about this?

The above output shows that the free/busy folder has a replica in the public folder database on the exchange 2007 server.
it does not list the free/busy folder from the old exchange 2000 administrative group.

if you check the article again it points to entries that have the name and parentpath set in the correct format.
in the above output, the old administrative group does not show up because the PF replication does not work between both the servers as the connectors are not setup.
you can try to configure the connectors to enable mailbox
do you have any user using outlook 2007? if yes, then are they able to view the free/busy details?
are users able to view free/busy in OWA?
were you able to create a new user and then check if the user can view free/busy details?
when you check the list of users in EMC, do they show up as legacy users?

No users are using Outlook 2007

You CAN see Free/Busy using OWA - can i do anything to make it available in 03?

I setup a new user but that cannot see the Free/Busy

There are no more legacy users, they have all been brought across.

that should force PF replication between the servers.

that is good.
you can stop all the exchange services on the old server or shutdown the old server for few days and check if users report any issues.

You've solved my problem too. The old exchange server wasn't able to send/receive mail from/to the Exchange 2007.

Once their SMTP & connector configuration was done all started to replicate.
