Free/Busy error after migrating to Exchange 2010

Hi

This is the sittuation I have at a client.

The client was running Exchange 2003 and upgraded to Exchange 2010. Everything worked fine and we replicated all Public Folders across.

Outlook 2003 clients that tried to update entries, or see other users entries, could not, It said that the FreeBusy schedule was not available.

The Free Busy folder was thought to be corrupt, and was therefore deleted.

Now, how do I recreate a Public Folder for Exchange 2003 for Free Busy. All the users have been moved to the Exchange 2010 server, but the users are using Outlook 2003 and Outlook 2010 (mixed throughout the company).

Do I recreate it on the Exchange 2010 server, and if so, how do I do it?

Hi Mike,

Outlook 2003 with Exchange 2010 mailbox retrives the FB info of other Exchange 2010 mailbox from the information published in Local Public Folders.

Remove last exchange server 2003 from your organization, if you do not have a public folder database in exchange 2010 then create one ane restart Microsoft Exchange Information Store.

Thnx,

you need to run the moveallreplicas.ps1 script located under the c:\program files\microsoft\exchange server\v14\scripts

you also need to ensure you have a public folder database assoicated with your mailbox database on 2010
get-mailboxdatabase | fl name,pub*

if you see a blank result there, run the following commands
get-publicfolderdatabase

get-mailboxdatabase | set-mailboxdatabase <result from previous>

Atleast the Exchange 2010 users using Outlook 2010 should be working fine with the EWS. Is that happening @ your location?

Hi

Yes, the Outlook 2010 users are working correctly, as they are using the avalibility services.

All PF's have beenmoved to the 2010 server, but the Free Busy seems to be corrupt, so what I need is a way to recreate the Free Busy folder.

I can see the folder in 2010, and it shows there are objects in there, but I fear that it is corrupted, so I want to delete it and recreate it.
