Medium Priority

Last Modified: 2012-08-14
we currently are migrating to exchange 07 from 03 but will be moving mailboxes in a staged approach so need both environments up and running.. I created a resource mailbox on the 07 box (conference room calander) and the free/busy info is ///// << lined out when trying to add as attendee..  It is doing this for both users on 03 & 07..  anyhelp working through this would be appreciated..

according to that article ..

Exchange 2007 Setup, in this case, creates a Public Folder database and automatically adds the Exchange 2007 Server to the OFFLINE ADDRESS BOOK and SCHEDULE+ FREE BUSY system folders replica lists, so you only have to concentrate on replicating Public Folders

the new exchange bos was at the root of the public folder.. but i did add the box to the actual public folders...  I wont let me do anything with the OAB or FREE/BUSY system folders...

In ESM expand the AG then folders, select view system folders you can see the Free/busy folders.. check the replicas and if the E2K 7 server is not there then add it.. You can Also do it from E2k7 PF administration Tool

Enable diagnostic logging for exchange 2007 to troubleshoot free/busy replication. I'm away from my pc due to some urgent work hence will not be able to provide you the MS KB but you can search in ms site and get the procedure to enable logging.

Just to summarize out action..
1, Both 2k7 & 2k3 FB PF folders have all PF server DB's added to its replication tab.
2, The replication schedule is set to always.
3, Removed the SSL from the "Public" folder web site on exchange 2007.

4, Enabled diagnostic logging on E2K7 for troubleshooting.
5, Did we enable diagnostic logging in exchange 2003?

Once it is done run ExBPA and check the configuration..

I have replicated your issue on my test servers : the following settings work well for me, nothing else..
I am using Win2003+Exchange 2007 with roll-up update 8
requirement of FB replication
Ex2003 side - Need to have exch2007 replica on all FB folders
on both servers the PF replication schedule is set to always.
Exchange 2007 - Removed the SSL from the "Public" folder web site on exchange 2007.
Mail enabled the FB folder (Not sure this is a hard requirement, i am testing this now by disabling it)

Try running from exchange 2003 server.. Is it version, 2.8??

Author

Commented:
ok that was it....

so i point to the 03 server adds the 07 server when i go back to look its gone...
if i point to the 07 server i dont have the option to add the 03 server

as far as resetting the system folder .. do i add the same guid to both exchange servers admin groups?
and if that doesnt work... im not sure if its worth calling Microsoft?.. I have a few utility production mailboxes on the 07 server this was my last hang up prior to fully migrating my 03 boxes..   I have another server i was building to cluster this server with...  thoughts on uninstalling and just reinstalling on my other server??? What if the issue is on the 03 server...??

Commented:
i just did the DACL check on the 03 server and and i am seeing stuff like this...
Missing Anonymous;Non-canonical order;Multiple allows and/or denies for the same SID;

does running FIX DACL work?

The public folder database 'Public Folder Database' cannot be deleted.

Public Folder Database
Failed
Error:
Exchange cannot remove the public folder database EXCHANGE07SERVER\Second Storage Group\Public Folder Database because it is the last public folder database in an organization that has pre-Exchange 2007 servers. Organizations that have pre-Exchange 2007 servers must have at least one public folder database.

Is DACL test shows any issue for FB folders?
Try to propagate replica list > Select all PF server Click OK > Select All servers > Select Add > Click OK.
 
If it is not working then do for the system folder reset or as you said removing public folder and start from scrach, But before that I would suggest you to contact Microsoft to check and see if thay have any fix for this..

I started another question lastnight.. not sure if you want to jump over there ( no one has responded yet.. ) so you can get the points??

the recieved external mail is sitting in the iron port SMTP outbound Q on the 03 server  almost like it doesnt know how to resolve my mailbox back to the 07 server... the really odd thing is it just kind of disappears from there... i dont get anything back to my msn account saying it was bounced....

Author

Commented:
I actually think i know what i need to do but am unsure how to do it..

after looking at the connector i see the  default smtp from my 03 server is there but not the ironport how do i add this???
