We are moving to EX10 from Ex03. I installed EX10 with no problems. My problem comes when trying to copy over the public folders. It with not create the structure tree no matter what. I turned on logging and got Categorizer is NDRing a recipient with address LegDN:/O=NORTHEAST METRO REGIONAL HS/OU=EXCHANGE ADMINISTRATIVE GROUP (FYDIBOHF23SPDLT) /CN=CONFIGURATION/CN=SERVERS/CN=CRUSADER/CN=MICROSOFT PUBLIC MDB with reason code 0xc004055d ().  but I can find no information on what it means or the problem. I aam ready to just recreate the folders manually but thought i'd  try here first

Do you have a RGC enabled with PF replication ?

You can check this by running
Get-ROutingGroupConnector "ConnectorName" |fl

You need to check for this attribute and ensure its True
-PublicFolderReferralsEnabled $true

this issue normally happens when a particular message cannot find a route to be delivered, if you want a live example - send an email from E2k3 mailbox to E2k10.

You'll find it getting stuck in your Queue to be delivered to E2k10.

So, what you need to do is to create a route that'll get an email / PF delivered to E2k10 using the following cmdlet (avoid it if you've used it already)

New-RoutingGroupConnector -identity "RGC E2k3-E2k10" -SourceTransportServers "Name of E2k10 Server" -TargetTransportServers "Name of E2k3 Server" -Cost 100 -Bidirectional $True

This would create a RGC between E2k3 and E2k10 and hence you're mail flow issue would get solved.

Happy Weekend.

Hi thanks for the response. I do have a routing connector. Mail seems to be working properly. If I send a email to a user on the new it seems to forward. I also can send a message to the old. So I am stumped right now.

Ok so email from E2k3 to E2k10 flows good. Great !!!

==> So, does your Ek210 hold a valid PF Database / can you create-modify-delete PF/PF Data?
==> Does PF Replicate from E2k10 to E2k3?

==> Now, when you create a new blank PF on E2k3 - does that replicate across?
==> When you dump data in the new PF on E2k3 - does that replicate across?

If the above both is true....
==> Can you remove replicas on old PF, and add it again - check if now the data flows.
==> How about you add content to the old PF - does this trigger replication? does old and new replicate OR simply new OR none.

Try the above steps and provide feedback.

Enable diagnostic logging on Exchange 2003 for MSExchangeIS\Publc folder and all transport categories over there  and Also enable diagnostic logging for MSexchange transport\ connection manager. let us know all the events it logs.


Recently faced a public folder replication issue during a migration in which antivirus was culprit.Do you have any spam filtering/Antivirus softwares on any or both servers?
If yes , stop the spam filtering/Antivirus services and disable them, then check.

So as everything is working fine ... what you can do as a best practice is run EXBPA and check if there is any issue ... if so it will report and also how to resolve them.

Its always good to run it monthly or quarterly and check that your Exchange Environment is in Good Health :)

In Exchange 2010 .... you can use Toolbox and run it :)

Thanks all for the suggestions. I ended up recreating the folders since there was no critical data in them
