Offline Address Book Error Exchange 2010 SP1

Hi,

I was trying to remove the replicas of a public folder of a old exchange server. After doing all steps, I still couldn't remove it. So I deleted it from ADSIEDIT Configuration. Removal went fine.

But since then I get this warning in the event viewer:

Log Name:      Application

DEL:0d80d279-371c-4987-8485-cdd785151a51], it is pointing to the Deleted Objects container in Active Directory. This property should be fixed as soon as possible.

You will need to check any offline address lists you have to ensure they are not configured for public folder distribution.

Also check the properties if the mailbox databases to make sure under client settings they are not set to use the deleted public folder store.

Here is what you should do

1. run adsiedit.msc and find the new public folder database you have created it will be in

Configuration -> Services > Microsoft Exchange -> Organization name -> Administrative Groups -> Exchange admin groups (xxxxx) ->  databases

2. right click properties on it and find its distinguishedName copy paste it in notepad

3. then go to Configuration -> Services > Microsoft Exchange -> Organization name -> ddress Lists Container -> Offline Address Lists -> Default Offline Address Book
and look for siteFolderServer it is shld be pointing to something like CN=DOMAIN PFDB\0ADEL:a44bc301-425b-44b1-ad12-419a683affd2,CN=Deleted Objects,CN=Configuration,DC=DOMAIN,DC=local

replace it with the value copied
