Error:
Cannot complete the operation because there isn't an available public folder data on server 'SERVER-EX'

when i try to open default public folders

cannot complete the operation because there isnt an available public folder database on server 'SERVER-EX'. It was running the command 'get-publicfolders -getchildren -identity \' -server 'SERVER-EX'

Do you have multiple public folder databases on different servers or just 1? Have you tried to dismount then re-mount the public folder database? Have you check to ensure that all of the Exchange services are started and no issues?

Check the event viewer as well to see if there are any other underlying issues with Exchange.

Just the 1 public folder - I can successfully dismount and remount the database, when doing so I don't get any error messages - all services are started

There's trace's of an old Exchange but only referring to Exchange Address book. nothing else

Thanks

Did you migrate public folder from previous version of exchange?
Appears like your current server may not be part of the replica list on the public folders.

I ended up creating a new public folders database and restoring.

Thank you all for help
