How to replicate folders from exchange 2003 to 2010 without a storm
Posted on 2011-09-29
I have just installed a exchange 2010 server in a 2003 environment. Everything is working correctly, but now I am trying to sync the public folders. However I am having issues. I started and selected to replicate all the folders, but this created a replication storm and filled up the pending smtp queue and essentially killed all smtp traffic.
After stopping all public folder replication in the environment, restarting smtp, and then clearing out the queue. I then removed the 2010 as a replication database on all of the public folders. However even after doing this, when I reenable the replication in the environment it still causes the same issue and floods the smtp queue.
How can I replicate these folders now without stopping the entire server from delivering mail?
