Public Folder query

Hi Experts

We are looking to create loads of Public Folders for our users, based on department etc. We will prob have dedicated Public Folder servers. We are running Exchange 2003 SP2 with Outlook 2003/2007 clients.

I have a couple of questions I was hoping someone could help me with;

a) Is it possible that some Public Folders are held on one Public Folder servers, and others on other Public Folder servers, or all *all* Public Folders have to reside on one server

b) We are split into 3 regions, each with their own Exchange Routing group; US, Europe and Russia. If a) is possible, the will prob look to the US PF server holding the US PF's, the European PF server holding the European PF's etc. Is it possible to set up replication of US PF's to the European PF server, or is it better to have US users connecting to the European PF server to view?

Cheers!

Okay Please understand the following basic concepts

1. Hiearchy replicates to all the servers which has PF store, This cannot be controlled.
2. Contents will only relicate to the other server if the Replica has been set up on that server.

For your scenario if you have users who will be in US Routing group & need to access PF's in UK Routing group, by default the referral will not be allowed, & i suggest you do not enable it. Because it does not look suitable to have data access enabled across regions.

Thats why you would need to set up replica of all the folders on one of the PF server in each region & let them replicate to each other, so that any user who needs access to a PF , he can get that from his local server. You can controll the access rights through the PF client permissions.

Does this help?
