Hell All,

IN this case the problem was .... You will get to see thsese attributes in ADSIEDIT
Configuration --> Microsoft exchange --> ORG --> ADmin groups --> Exch admn groups --> Folder heirarchies --> public folders --> properties --> MSEXCHOWNINGPFTREEBL was <not set>

Configuration --> Microsoft exchange --> ORG --> ADmin groups --> Exch admn groups --> Servers --> Exchange server --> information store -> SG6 --> Public Folder --> properties --> Also the msexchowningPFTREE was <not set>

I copied the DN of the Folder heirarchies --> Public folders.


we went to EMC --> Mount the public folder store.

Happy Ending.....
