Public Folders and Routing groups

Hi

We have 3 sites; London, NY and Sydney.

Each site is routing group and has a dedicated Bridgehead server and mailbox server. We are looking into the idea of having a Public Folder bridgehead server in each site as well which handles PF replication only.

Does anyone know of this is possible? So we'd have one Bridgehead server for mails and one Bridgehead server for PF replication per routing group?

Hey Bruce,

Unfortunately not. The bridgehead server is responsible for all traffic in and out of an Exchange 2003 Routing Group. It is not possible for you to differentiate the different types of data entering and leaving, and send it through particular bridgehead servers.

The only two solutions I can see are:

1. Add additional bridgehead servers
2. Store your replicated Public Folder databases on a different server (even the intended Bridgehead Server) which is configured in a routing group of its own. Thus the traffic would be forced to go out through the dedicated bridgehead.

Personally, if this is a major issue, I would go for option 1, or even just increase the performance of the existing bridgehead server by adding some additional RAM, an additional CPU etc.

Thanks...do you know how I can check how PF replication is set up? Where do I need to go in ESM to check what PF's are replicated between which servers?

In ESM, locate the Public Folder object, view its Properties and then look at the 'Replication' tab.
