Getting this error in Exchange application logs:
Couldn't find an Exchange 2010 or later public folder server with a replica for the free/busy folder: EX:/o=DOMAIN INC/ou=FIRST ADMINISTRATIVE GROUP.

Are there any outlook 2003 users in your domain? they need to use public folders for oab and free/busy information.

If not did you clear the public folder distribution (and enabled the web-based distribution) for your offline address book? Use Exchange management console, organization configuration, mailbox and go to the offline address book tab do properties of you address book(s) and go to the distribution tab to change the settings.

We have public folder distribution cleared and web-based enabled, but we have Outlook 2003 sp2 or later check on client support - is that a problem?

no that should not be a problem. was the public folder distribution already cleared or did you do this lately? And after you cleared the check the error still persists?
Commented:
The problem lies with our migration not being completed properly and not removing the last 2003 Exchange Server in the environment.  If we mount the old store where the public folders were the error goes away so we are going to go back through the migration instructions from Microsoft and see what was missed.  Thanks all for your help and as we still don't have a resolution to the issue other than mounting the old Public Folder store we won't be awarding any points.

Sorry and thanks again for your efforts.
