I'm unfortunately stuck
with Exchange 2003 SP2 until a migration to Exchange 2007 or 2010 within a few months.
I'm having a problem in attaching the correct
Public Store as the Default Public Store on each of my additional Private databases - each created within their own Storage Group.
There are three total storage groups, each group having one Private and one Public store. I cannot get the Private stores in the 2nd and 3rd storage groups associated with their corresponding Public stores.
I cannot associate either one of the additional Private mail stores to any other Public store except
the First Storage Group (which was earlier renamed to ELCS Private Store).
The Public stores are all empty
at this time so I don't have to contend with any data loss in the Public stores while attempting to resolve this. The Private stores are not
System Manager Tree View
First Storage Group (ELCS Mail Store)
First Storage Group (ELCS Public Store)
Second Storage Group (PeopleLikeYou Mail Store)
Second Storage Group (PeopleLikeYou Public Store)
Third Storage Group (WeAreChangeWichita Mail Store)
Third Storage Group (WeAreChangeWichita Public Store)
I discovered this discrepency only upon the creation of a new public folder under the tree within Outlook - from an account that is in either the second or third mail stores, when I later noticed it was generated in the wrong Public database - placed into the First Default Public store, instead.
The public folder trees are correctly associated with the desired Public stores in their respective storage groups:
Public Folder Tree Properties for First Storage Group
Public Folder Tree Properties for Second Storage Group
Public Folder Tree Properties for Third Storage Group
When attempting to specify a new default Public
for one or the other Private
stores - they're simply unavailable for selection, but I must find a way to rectify this.
If I've missed something obvious, please advise! And thanks in advance.
