I've got some public folders that I want replicated to the new email server I just built and I went in to the properties of each folder and added the 2nd Exchange server as a replica but none of the data from the old Exchange server is being replicated.  I'm getting error messages on the old server saying:  

Error 1129 occurred while processing a replication event.

 Folder: (1-7B529) IPM_SUBTREE\xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

I get this warning for every public folder I have.  Thanks in advance!

that error means that the replica has not been created.

does this help?

also, please look at mgmt console - system - replicas in the OLD exchange server, set the replication partner to the new exch server public folder instance.

Public folders are always tricky.

Just backup the public folders using outlook, and restore it on the new server.

oh - pls check that you have enabled public folder replication globally

properties - replication - add new exchange server in dialog "replicate public folders to these information stores"

Where do I set this?  On the properties of each folder I want to replicate?

When I look at the status of the replication, it says "both modified" and "in sync" but when I click on the "status" tab, it shows the old server has 200+ items and the new only has 5 (I think because the 5 are new items that someone has recently created).  I set the replica up (new server) but it just doesn't look like it's pushing those changes...

With Exchange 2003 to add a PFReplica you can use PFDavAdmin to collectively do for a Main PF an dall SUbfolder or as you want
