Microsoft Exchange Error
--------------------------------------------------------
Action 'Update Hierarchy' could not be performed on object 'Update Hierarchy'.

Update Hierarchy Failed Error:The operation cannot be executed because there is no available public folder database on the server 'CORPEX'.

How did you do the restore of the database?? Did you use any backup application for this??

Normally restoring to an allready working Exchange database is not possbile. You actually need to change the setting for the database so you are the only one able to write to it (unfortenately i don;t have an Exchange server at hand). Also, when you restore, you should enable the setting that makes the database accesiable again.. Are you able to mount the database again? If not, what error do you get??

Normally btw, best oractice is to set up either a restore database in which you restore the public folders in or recreate an Exchange server and domain with the same name s the production one and restore inthere...

Your other option (though it's not easy to get it working) is pubmerge fo using as a backup tool. It is the public folder tool that Exmerge is for the Users mailboxes..
