Hi,

We are replicate exchange 2003 to ex2010.
I found that many of our public folders ALIAS NAMES were made with spaces and/or special caracters.
Ex2010 do not support them and decided to rename them.
I did the first test with the SCHEDULE+FREE/BUSY folder and rename it.
It's not working better... I'm not able to expand them to be able to rename it as it was...
Any idea plse ?

That is a system folder - has someone fiddled with its from the default configuration?
If so, your best bet is to reset it to the defaults and then replciate it.

They don't contain any unique data, so resetting them will be fine.

The alias shouldn't have been touched in the first place. These are system folders, managed by Exchange. Plus you are unable to get at the properties of the folder to change it back. The information isn't store elsewhere.

I don't see the risk either - back when Exchange 2003 was current I was doing this a couple of times a month for various clients.
