Exchange 2007:  A single public folder isn't replicating....but others are

Posted on 2009-02-20

Just restored this single public folder from backup because it was "corrupted".  Now its functional, but won't replicate over to my other servers.  Other public folders are still replicating just fine.  How do I even begin to troubleshoot this?  

What I have already done:

1.  In the "Public Folder Management Console", I have verified that "Use public folder database replication schedule" is checked (that is how ALL of the other public folders are configured.  I have also click "update content" on the folder.

2.  In Exchange Shell, I have kicked off replication of public folders via the update-publicfolder cmdlet

3.  In PFDAVADMIN.exe, I have ensured that the replication partners are configured correctly.  I also have clicked "Propagate replicate list".

4.  I have waited a full 24-hours after completing the above actions.........and still no replication of this single folder.  I HAVE verified that new items in other public folders are replicating successfully.

Is there a way to troubleshoot this?  Is there advanced logging for public folder replication that I can turn on?

    The first thing I would try would be to turn off replication to that folder and re-enable it.

    I restored from a backup again and is now replicating as expected.  I didn't try your advice...but it might have worked.
