Exchange 2010 - Unable to create public folder
Posted on 2015-01-10
I am in the process of migrating my domain and Exchange 2010 to a different server. Since I don't use the public folders I didn't replicate the public folders to the new server thinking I would just re-create the public folder database on the new server. I have replicated AD on the new server. I have exchange installed and all the mailboxes on the new server. Exchange functions fine in that regard.
I have disconnected the old server and seized all of the FSMO roles to the new server. Now when I try to create a new public folder database it won't let me.
This the command and results that I am getting:
[PS] C:\Windows\system32>new-publicfolderdatabase -Server 'MIGRATIONSERVER' -Name 'Public Folders' -EdbFilePath 'C:\Prog
ram Files\Microsoft\Exchange Server\V14\Mailbox\Public Folders\Public Folders.edb' -LogFolderPath 'C:\Program Files\Micr
osoft\Exchange Server\V14\Mailbox\Public Folders'
You must provide a value for this property.
+ CategoryInfo : NotSpecified: (0:Int32) [New-PublicFolderDatabase], DataValidationException
+ FullyQualifiedErrorId : 3F52E9E4,Microsoft.Exchange.Management.SystemConfigurationTasks.NewPublicFolderDatabase
I know that I need a public folder database for offline address box functions, etc. So I need to get this resolved before Monday when the office staff returns.
Any help would be appreciated.
