Update a Public Folder Hierarchy

Exchange 2010
 

Applies to: Exchange Server 2010 SP3, Exchange Server 2010 SP2

Topic Last Modified: 2012-07-23

This topic explains how to use the Exchange Management Console or the Exchange Management Shell to update a public folder hierarchy.

Perform this procedure to synchronize the public folder hierarchy from one server to the other servers on which public folder replicas exist. This procedure is helpful in cases where the public folder hierarchy on one server is different from the public folder hierarchy on other servers in your organization.

noteNote:
In Microsoft Exchange Server 2003, this procedure is known as manually replicating the public folder.

Looking for other management tasks related to public folders? Check out Managing Public Folders.

CautionCaution:
Performing this procedure only allows the server running Exchange to begin any outstanding replication actions. The process may take several hours to complete.
Because factors not controlled by replication can prevent the hierarchy from becoming immediately synchronized, performing this procedure doesn't ensure that the public folder hierarchy will be completely synchronized.
This procedure only updates the public folder hierarchy. It doesn't update public folder content. For instructions about how to update public folder content, see Update Public Folders.

You need to be assigned permissions before you can perform this procedure. To see what permissions you need, see the "Public folders" entry in the Mailbox Permissions topic.

  1. In the console tree, click Toolbox.

  2. In the result pane, click Public Folder Management Console.

  3. In the action pane, click Open Tool. The Public Folder Management Console appears.

  4. In the public folder tree, click the Public Folders - <Server Name> node.

  5. In the action pane, click Update Hierarchy.

You need to be assigned permissions before you can perform this procedure. To see what permissions you need, see the "Public folders" entry in the Mailbox Permissions topic.

This example updates the public folder hierarchy on the server Server01.

Update-PublicFolderHierarchy -Server "Server01"
