Exchange 2010 Database shows mounted but no properties

Greetings,

Had an exchange server fail the other day. Databases failed over to other server, except the public folder database. Server back up. Public folder database shows mounted again but no properties and when sending an email to an account in the database, an email is received stating the account does not exist in AD. I was able to check the exchange server but not AD. Exchange did not show he email account under mailboxes. Couldn't check AD but will.

Any suggestions on dismounting and remounting the database? Will that perhaps have the account show back up?

Thanks

Account not in AD. Dismounted and remounted public folder database - nothing.

Any errors in the Event Logs?

If you go to the EMC Tools and review Public Folder Management, are you seeing folders?

Thanks for the reply. I didn't think to check public folder management. I do see the database on the drive with the date of the server failure. Nothing in logs.

both system and default folders are listed, as well as all subfolders. I can go into the properties of each and all tabs are there and properties are still configured. There is no parent path listed. Database shows mounted in EMC.
