This is the error I am getting

Couldn't find an Exchange 2010 or later public folder server with a replica for the free/busy folder: EX:/O=SOLVE LIMITED/OU=FIRST ADMINISTRATIVE GROUP.

I have tried all articles on how to replicate free/busy folders and seems this still show up in the log.

Any advice?

Going to need some more background on this. Has this worked before? Did you just do a migration from an older Exchange software such as 2003? Did you just decommission an Exchange server?

for me it looks someone have removed self replica or deleted public folder through ADSIEDIT

It sounds like you need to set 2010 as a Replica Server for all your Public Folders. Check this article here towards the very bottom.

Follow that article. When I setup replication from 2003 it works fine.
When on the 2010 and add server to replication tab then select update content get following error:

Microsoft Exchange Error
Action 'Update Content' could not be performed on object '/o=Solve Limited/cn=addrlists/cn=oabs/cn=Default Offline Address List'.

/o=Solve Limited/cn=addrlists/cn=oabs/cn=Default Offline Address List
Server 'MARS' doesn't have a replica of public folder '\NON_IPM_SUBTREE\OFFLINE ADDRESS BOOK\/o=Solve Limited/cn=addrlists/cn=oabs/cn=Default Offline Address List'. Public folder content can be synchronized only from a server that has a replica of that public folder.


I think this is the error that is logged on the application log.

I think if memory servers, Exchange 2010 has created its own OAB. You need to identify which one that was and just set the replication on it, to go back to the 2003 server. In essence you are sending each servers OAB files in the other servers direction. Same for the Schedule+ and Free/Busy information.

I have moved the OAB generator to the new server. How would be possible to see which one is that?

This seems to resolve itself. Had to reboot server after some updates from Microsoft came down and after that no more event in the app log.
