I have migrated from Exchange 2003 to 2010 and I am using Public Folders. I followed instructions in the deployment wizard, but it's not working. I get the following error in the Windows App. event log:

Log Name:      Application
Source:        MSExchangeFDS
Date:          11/2/2011 4:58:16 PM
Event ID:      1021
Task Category: General
Level:         Warning
Keywords:      Classic
User:          N/A
Computer:      MCC-EXCH.MCC.LOCAL
Process MSExchangeFDS.exe (PID=1884). Could not find directory \\EXCH-SVR\ExchangeOAB\123a886d-006a-4f1b-9cb5-795fcd9143a6. This is normal if it has never been generated. Otherwise, make sure this directory and share has read permission for "Exchange Servers" group.

I checked the folders, and there is noe Exchange OAB folder, there is a ClientAccess\OAB folder, but no files are in it. 'Enable Web-based distribution' and 'Enable Public Folder distribution' are checked. Will manually creating the ExchangeOAB folder and setting permissions work? Are there instructions to do this?
