Exchange 2007 public folder is corrupt,

restore is no good, cannot mount.  How do I forcibly remove and replace this DB? Managment console cannot delete it.  Cannot create another as I get a message only one public folder is allowed.

try to rename the mdb file, and the form the exchange management console mount the public folder, it should mount a new blank db.

Bingo!

I had tried that earlier this morning, but did not restart the server. (restarted services only) Much easier to bounce it at this hour.  Now to finish up those defaults.

BTW, this started when an old exchange 2000 server was decomissioned.  It acted like it was going through the motions, and replicated to AD, but everything about it haveing to be manually cleaned up.

Thanks Again.
