Use the Update-PublicFolder cmdlet to start content synchronization of a public folder.

Update-PublicFolder -Identity <PublicFolderIdParameter> -Server <ServerIdParameter> [-Confirm [<SwitchParameter>]] [-DomainController <Fqdn>] [-WhatIf [<SwitchParameter>]]

To use the Update-PublicFolder cmdlet, the account you use must be delegated the following:

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

For more information about permissions, delegating roles, and the rights that are required to administer Exchange Server 2007, see Permission Considerations.


Parameter Required Type Description




Use the Identity parameter to specify the GUID or public folder name that represents a specific public folder. You can also include the path by using the format TopLevelPublicFolder\PublicFolder.

You can omit the parameter label Identity so that only the public folder name or GUID is supplied.




The Server parameter specifies the identity of a Mailbox server with a public folder database that will be the source of the replication.




The Confirm parameter causes the command to pause processing and requires you to acknowledge what the command will do before processing continues. You don't have to specify a value with the Confirm parameter.




The DomainController parameter specifies the domain controller to use to write this configuration change to Active Directory. Use the fully qualified domain name (FQDN) of the domain controller that you want to use.




The WhatIf parameter instructs the command to simulate the actions that it would take on the object. By using the WhatIf parameter, you can view what changes would occur without having to apply any of those changes. You don't have to specify a value with the WhatIf parameter.


Error Description



Exceptions Description


These examples show two ways to start content replication of the public folder named My Public Folder in the \Legal\Cases path from the server named My Server to all of the servers on the replication list for My Public Folder.
