I have a PublicFolderDB that doesn't have a database tied to it.   How do I get one built and tied to it.   I cannot remove the PublicfolderDb because it says I have to have one but it will not let me build one because I can only have one Public folder database.   Can someone tell me how to get it built and associated with the Default PublicfolderDB?

I believe you are running with the Standard Edition of Exchange Server.

you can assign existing public folder database to your mailbox databases.

Set-MailboxDatabase -Identity "Mailbox Database" -PublicFolderDatabase "PF Database"
