Unable to view Public Folders in ESM

When in ESM I can not see the Public Folders via First Admin Groups\Folders.  I have only 1 exchange server.

You need to tick the checkbox in properties to show Admin groups

Mr-Madcowz is refering to the check box found if you right click on the First Organization (Exchange) and choose properties then check the box for Display administrative groups.

Hedley PhillipsOwnerCommented:
Right hand click on the top level and select properties. Then check the box that says Display administrative groups.

restart the ESM and job done.

My only question is why is this an option you have to select? Surely it should be on as default (experts?)

Creating Active Directory Users from a Text File

If your organization has a need to mass-create AD user accounts, watch this video to see how its done without the need for scripting or other unnecessary complexities.

 
tenaj-207Commented:
No it's not on by default.  The logic (flawed?) being that if you don't know how to turn it on then you probably shouldn't be changing the settings.

I am quite capable of turning it on tenaj-207.  I came here for advice not to be chastised.  The Display Admin Groups is checked.  When I select Folders and then Public Folders nothing appears.  I ran isslockd as was mentioned in other posts but that did not resolve the issue.

Do you have sharepoint server installed? I have heard some comments about that and ESM public folder issues.

You are definately using an account with full perms? (I know, just had to check!)

Also try:

Thank you Mr-Madcowz.  We do not have sharepoint server installed.  I am using an account with all perms.  I will review the links you have provided.  Thank you.

No probs.

Is this a new install or existing?
I take it you can see the PF both in Outlook and view ESM through the servers rather than through folders.

ameswAuthor Commented:
This is an existing install.  Yes we can see the PF via Outlook and through ESM servers.  I found this to be a problem when I wanted to email enable a Public Folder.    I have tried your first link and the AD is configured correctly per the resolution.

Amesw,

My post above was by no means an attempt to chastise you.  I apologize that it came out like that.  I was reponding to Madcowz question on why Microsoft would by default not turn that function on.

As for the problem of adding an email address to a public folder.  The same information should be avalible under  Server > Servername > First storage Group > Public Folder Store > Public Folders.  Then right click on the public folder and choose properties.  Under the Email Address tab you should be able to make the change you want to.

tenja-207..  sorry for my misunderstanding your intent.  

When I create the public folder it is not creating email addresses.  I was going to use the "Enable Email" option in Folders\Public Folders to try to add email to the PF there.  

Under the Servers\PF and when I click on properties I do not have the exchange tabs.  On previously created email boxes I can access the exchange tabs.  Also,  Under the permissions tab "Directory Rights" is grey and unavailable for selection in the newly created PFs.  It seems that when I creates something new in PF it does not flow to AD.

tenaj-207Commented:
As a test, try to create a new PF under Folders/PF (right click on public folder and choose new folder).
Have you tried to right click on the Folders/PF then choose Connect to and choose your database?

Also check the eventlogs for anything Exchange related.

tenaj-   I have tried to "Connect to" a database but none appear.  And as I mentioned earlier I do not have the exchange tabs in the newly created PFs.

Install the ESM pack on a different computer and see if it's available from there.

I would run ISINTEG -FIX on your exchange server.  This repairs problems within the exchange database.
