Hello,

I'm having some issues creating a public folder database within our Exchange Management Console. We have Exchange 2010 installed on Server 2008 Standard SP2.

When I try to create the public folder database it states that it is created successfully. However, when I check the folder that the database is supposed to be in, there is nothing there. I cannot mount the database from within the Exchange Management Console because there is nothing to mount.

I'm running this as domain admin.

Here is the error I receive when attempting to mount:

--------------------------------------------------------
Microsoft Exchange Error
--------------------------------------------------------
Failed to mount database 'PFDatabase'.

PFDatabase

Error:

Is this Second PF Database on this server ? You can have only One Mapi PFDatabase per server

Is the IS service running ?
Try running EXBPA and ensure everything is fine
I would also like you to run the below command

Setup.com /PrepareAD from the Exchange setup files

Issue is resolved.

I rebooted the server and I was able to create and mount the new PF database without any issues.

Thank you for your help.
