Exchange 2003 public folder
Posted on 2009-05-12
Brief history - Original exchange 2003 server std installed a number of years ago (2003). Second exchange server 2003 std added about 4 years ago replicated public folders across to second server, moved mailboxes accross. Original exchange server no longer operational but still listed in ESM - this has not caused me any problems.
I have recently installed a new(third) exchange server 2003 enterprise, moved all mailboxes across to the third server. I have setup public folder replication (same process as second server from original) but I don't think it is working. All users having problems when scheduling meetings - no free/busy information just hash.
I have tried to send hierarchy and content but am getting an error in the event viewer 0x80040112 "SchedulePLusfreeBusy folder could not be opened for duplicate message deletion on virtual machine" source MSEchangeFBPublish.
I have noticed that in the queue for the third server there is an thirdserver-IS@mydomain.com subject hierarchy with Recipients - Envelope Recipients: SMTP:Originalserver@mydomain.com (no longer available) SMTP:firstname.lastname@example.org;
I did have trouble getting OMA/activesync going but have resolved this but I am wondering did I cause a problem with IIS in resolving this which may have contributed to this problem?
I have Sophos puremessage on this third server (and second server) but I dont see anything in quarantine.
I have run outlook /cleanfreebusy and added test calendar events in various users calendars but no joy.
Has anyone got steps I could take to troubleshoot this?
