Please re-check permissions, re-verify the settings as per inter-org doc.
Try posting some new info on the PF and try to reduce the replication time to basic 5min for troubleshooting purpose.

permissions "look" fine
i just created a few sub folders and mapped them individually  that worked  but the sub folders were not created

i logged on as the account the interorg uses and it can create subflders

"i just created a few sub folders and mapped them individually  that worked  but the sub folders were not created"

You have to create each sub folder on both sides and map them - interorg tool won't create that for you.

Can you paste a screen shot (before-after) where this tool created sub folders for you automatically.

no since removed

but it deffinatly worked

i had a strating folder  on one side

\shared\mis

and created \shared\mis  on the subscriber


mis is over 300 sub folders  all were present next morning

i have turned up logging  and it does say exsync doesnt have the create public folder write amongst others  but it does it has full control loggedon as it i can creat folders

That's odd - since MAPI folders have to be created using ESM Console taking help from IIS, and as per what you are suggesting that Inter-ORg creates those exact replica of folders.


Ahhh wait a minute - are you suggesting - about mapping top level folders and sub folders get mapped automatically ??

Now, that makes sense - yep that would work in such an order. So, the sub folders are replicating / or main folder or both ??

well it worked once but unable to do it again


if i create sub folders and map one to one the msgs come over but not the subfolder (of this subfolder)

les just say nothing happens with folders  msg come across fine

pub server
shared\mis\a\b\c\d

sub server shared\mis\   just the messages in rout of mis come over
if i add A

shared\mis\a   then just hemesages in a comes over it doesnt do b\c\d as subfolders of a

This problem will come up only if you have chosen to replicate changes in only  the
direction between publisher (source) to subscriber  (destination).

If you set up the public folders on the subscriber with  incorrect permissions the
interorg replication tool fails. If you delete the  public folder on the subscriber
end, that deletion is not replicated back to  the publisher. So if you immediately
recreate the public folder on the  subscriber with correct permissions and try
replicating you will receive the  following error.

1. Stop the Interorg tool service.
2. Change the Registry value in the  subscribing org to 1.
3. Allow online maintenance to run.
4. Start the interorg  tool and allow for a replication cycle to take place. At this
time the  folders should replicate over to the subscribing org again.
5. Allow for the  hierarchy to replicate around the Subscribing org.
6 Remove the registry  value from all the servers.

   HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\MSExchangeIS\
   ParametersPublic\Replication Folder Tombstone Age Limit (Refer to KB 159196)

"Replication Folder Tombstone Age Limit" value should be set to 1 under the  
"HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\MSExchangeIS\ParametersPublic\
registry key"

ok still getting same thing   (may be just impatient :-)   how do i know permissions are right

exsync  is owner of the root folder i created, and for the sake of getting this working is now a full exchange admin   I dont think i could give it any more rights if i tried.
if it doesnt work later today

would exporting to pst and reimporting to get the structure there work?  beariong in mind msg's do copy over just doesnt create any  sub folders
