I installed a new Exchange 2003 server into my existing Exchange site. We have 8 Exchange servers all together, one Exchange 5.5 (being phased out), and 7 Exchange 2003 servers all running SP2. I installed a new server into this mixed mode site the other day. But I found that I could not view the public folder tree in ESM. I had this issue once before and managed to clear it up by giving it time to replicate and rebuilding the RUS. This time none of that worked. Here is what I have tried so far...
1. Rebuild RUS
2. Given days to allow full replication
3. Deleted pub.edb and pub.stm and re-created public folder store
4. Verified that the public folder store has a proxy address in adsiedit (rules out RUS right?)
At this point, I am out of ideas. I can say that when I connect to a test mailbox on this new Exchange 2003 server, that the user in Outlook can also not see any public folders. When I try using pfdavadmin and connect to this new exchange server, I also see no public folders there either. I think its definately an issue with Exchange on this new box and not an issue with AD (I think).
Anyone have any other ideas or things I can try? Searching online has not given me much to go on.
