Exchange 2010 Public Folder Replication

Posted on 2014-03-20

I'm having an issue with public folder replication in our 6 member exchange 2010 DAG environment.  Originally we had public folders on 2 of the servers.  A few weeks ago I added public folder databases on the other 4 servers including adding these new databases as replicas.  The structure replicated successfully without any issues.  Today I happened to notice item counts were off and the folders weren't replicating correctly to the other replica servers.  I can't see anything visibly wrong that would cause this.  Any help would be most appreciated.

1. Open ADSI Edit on either a domain controller or your Microsoft Exchange 2010 server.

2. Navigate to the " CN=Servers" ADSI attribute by locating the below path, I have also included a screenshot of the location to help identify the attribute:

CN=Servers,CN=First Administrative Group,CN=Administrative Groups,CN=First Organization,CN=Microsoft Exchange,CN=Services,CN=Configuration,

DC=domain,DC=local



3. Right click the " CN=Servers" container and select delete. Click OK when prompted in order to confirm the action. Note: Do not delete the top level container " First Administrative Group" , this is against Microsoft best practices and may have a negative affect on your Exchange organisation.

4. Ensure replication of your Active Directory database has occurred to all domain controllers and then attempt sending an e-mail to one of your mail-enabled public folders. You should now find e-mail makes it way to these folders as expected.

If you are not getting any errors, but replication numbers are 'off' - then it is most likely due to deleted objects in the source database that are 'purge pending' - and therefore not being replicated.

The question is: are all the replica's showing the same numbers, and are the 2 source databases showing the same numbers?  If so, this is quite likely the case.  Either that, or you're having 2 databases sharing the exact same problems, showing the exact same symptoms - which is unlikely.
