Exchange 2003 public folder replication problem
Posted on 2014-11-08
Hi, I am moving exchange 2003, services and mailboxes, from a physical box to a new virtual server on brand new hardware.
So, new virtual server 2003 with updates and relevant smtp, www, iis, nntp services installed - then fresh install of exchange 2003. All going fine - can see new server and existing exchange in ESM - until I try to get public folders to replicate. When I choose 'Folders' and try connect to the old server - no problem - I can see the list of public folders. Have gone into properties of each - added the new server as the additional store to replicate to -gone through each folder (there's not that many ) - but nothing is happening - I have left it for some hours. When I click on Folders -and try to connect to the new server - I get an error -could not locate root folder - ensure the default virtual server is running and configured correctly.
Errors in the event viewer like Error -2147221233 reading property 0x67480014 on object type tbtOwningFolders from database "First Storage Group\Public Folder Store (DELIVERANCE)".
domain\admin was unable to log on as domain\admin to the Public Folder Store "First Storage Group\Public Folder Store (servername)".
Any assistance welcome thanks
