Exchange 2003 Public Folder replication query

Hi

We have 3 Routing group - London, NY and Sydney.

Each routing group has a Bridgehead server, mailbox server and a Public Folder server.

We are going to need to add a new routing group for a new location, Paris.

The Paris routing group will have a Public Folder server as well, but I'm not sure how to set up replication with the other PF servers? Or do I need to set up replication with the Public Folder master server only, or will replication take place automatically?

Secondly, how will Outlook clients in Paris know how to connect to the Paris PF server for their public folders? Or will they automatically connect to the nearest one?

Thanks

You will have to set up replication exchange system manager, creating public folder store and relication between the servers.

Users will connect to the public folder replica that their mailbox is on.

"Users will connect to the public folder replica that their mailbox is on."

Would it make sense to have the Paris PF server be responsible for all PF replication with other PF servers, and then it would also send a replica to the mailbox server in Paris?

In the properties of the mailbox store you can tell it which public folder replica to use. If you have a dedicated public folder server then you can set the mailbox store to use that.

Then make sure that the public folder server replicates to other servers.

Hope that helps
