How to Update a Public Folder Hierarchy

 

Applies to: Exchange Server 2007 SP3, Exchange Server 2007 SP2, Exchange Server 2007 SP1, Exchange Server 2007

Topic Last Modified: 2007-08-28

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."

Before you perform the following procedure, you must perform the actions in one of the following sections based on whether you are working with the release to manufacturing (RTM) version of Exchange Server 2007 or Exchange 2007 Service Pack 1 (SP1).

To perform the following procedure in the RTM version of Exchange 2007, the account you use must be delegated the following:

  • Exchange Server Administrator role and local Administrators group for the target server

Also, before you perform this procedure, be aware of the following:

  • In the RTM version of Exchange 2007, public folders are managed only in the Exchange Management Shell. You cannot use the Exchange Management Console.
  • Performing this procedure only allows the Exchange server 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 does not ensure that the public folder hierarchy will be completely synchronized.
  • This procedure only updates the public folder hierarchy. It does not update public folder content. For instructions about how to update public folder content, see How to Update Public Folders.

To perform this procedure in Exchange 2007 SP1, the account you use must be delegated the following:

  • Exchange Public Folder Administrator role and local Administrators group for the target server

Also, before you perform this procedure, be aware of the following:

  • Performing this procedure only allows the Exchange server 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 does not ensure that the public folder hierarchy will be completely synchronized.
  • This procedure only updates the public folder hierarchy. It does not update public folder content. For instructions about how to update public folder content, see How to Update Public Folders.
