Public Folder Replication

I go to the old server and select the folder and add the new server to replicate the folder. This is working fine. The problem and I guess it really isn't, but when you have multiple folders within a folder, those folders will not replicate. Looks like each one has to be done individually. Is there a better and easier way to do this. As an example, I have a folder that has around 20 folders in it. I have to go through each one and add the new server so that it will replicate. I am wishing that there was an easier way to do this or am I going about this the wrong way. Thanks

Use powershell commands

After adding new server, leave server for sometime alone and let it replicate the data. It can take time to completely replicate.

Thanks for the quick reply. I do not know if I want to actually move the public folders at this time to the new server. That is why replications sounds good. The problem with replication is that it looks like each folder has to be touched to add the new server to it. I do not understand why if you select a folder that everything within that folder does not replicate.

For that you can enable the advance logging, that will tell you the root cause and you can troubleshoot accordingly. You can also restart or dismount and mount back for source and destination DB's after adding the replicas, and normally it fixes the issue.
