Unable to Create Public Folders on new Exchange 2010 Server

Hello,

I am trying to create Public Folders on my new Exchange 2010 server, but for some reason it will not let me. Here is the error I get:

New Public Folders
Completed

Exchange Management Shell command completed:
new-publicfolderdatabase -Server 'VLAB01' -Name 'Public Folders' -EdbFilePath 'C:\Exchange Server Databases\Public Folders\Public Folders.edb' -LogFolderPath 'C:\Exchange Server Databases\Public Folders\Logs'

Mount Public Folders
Failed

Error:
Couldn't mount the database that you specified. Specified database: Public Folders; Error code: An Active Manager operation failed. Error: The Microsoft Exchange Replication service may not be running on server VLAB01.ephora.local. Specific RPC error message: Error 0x6d9 (There are no more endpoints available from the endpoint mapper) from cli_MountDatabase.

An Active Manager operation failed. Error: The Microsoft Exchange Replication service may not be running on server VLAB01.ephora.local. Specific RPC error message: Error 0x6d9 (There are no more endpoints available from the endpoint mapper) from cli_MountDatabase

Error 0x6d9 (There are no more endpoints available from the endpoint mapper) from cli_MountDatabase

Exchange Management Shell command attempted:
mount-database -Identity 'Public Folders'

================

I've looked at the services and the Microsoft Exchange Replication and RPC Client Access services are running, so I don't know what else to do.

FYI, I have an Exchange 2007 server on another server. I have installed a new Exchange 2008 server on Server 2008 and am also in the proces of removing the Exchange 2007 server. On that installation, I am unable to uninstall Exchange 2007 because it keeps telling me that I need to move my Public Folders or delete them.

My end goal is to get rid of Exchange 2007 and then only use Exchange 2010. Everything seems to be working fine on the Exchagne 2010 server except I cannot create public folders.

Thanks,
John

What Outlook clients do you use? If you have clients 2007 or newer Public Folders is not required in Exchange 2010. Check out my article for removing public folders from exchange 2007.

Does anyone know why I got that error when creating Public Folders? The wierd thing is that even though I get that error, the Public Folder database is created. It starts off unmounted so I have to munt it. I can even create a folder in the Public Folders area and post a document. It seems to be working.
