Topic Last Modified: 2008-07-14

This topic explains how to use the Exchange Management Console or the Exchange Management Shell to update the public folder content in a specified public folder's replication list.

For more information about how to update the public folder hierarchy, see How to Update a Public Folder Hierarchy.

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 Microsoft Exchange Server 2007 or Exchange 2007 Service Pack 1 (SP1).

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

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 that in the RTM version of Exchange 2007, public folders are managed only in the Exchange Management Shell. You cannot use the Exchange Management Console.

To perform this procedure, the account you use must be delegated the following:

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

  1. Start the Exchange Management Console.

  2. In the console tree, click Toolbox.

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

  4. In the public folder tree, click or expand Default Public Folders, and then if any public folders are displayed in the result pane, select the parent folder of the public folder that you want to update.

    noteNote:
    If the public folder tree is empty, you must connect to the server on which the public folders reside. For more information, see How to Connect to a Server by Using the Public Folder Management Console.
  5. In the result pane, click the public folder that you want to update, and then in the action pane, click Update Content.

  • To update the folders in the replication list of the public folder named My Public Folder that resides on the server named My Server, run the following command.

    Update-PublicFolder "\My Public Folder" -Server "My Server"
    
    noteNote:
    The Server parameter specifies the identity of a Mailbox server with a public folder database that is the source of the replication.
  • To update the replica list for all public folders on Server01, run the following command:

    Get-PublicFolder "\" | Update-PublicFolder -Server "Server01"
    

For detailed syntax and parameter information, see the Update-PublicFolder reference topic.

  • To update the folders in the replication list of the public folder named My Public Folder that resides on the server named My Server, run the following command.

    Update-PublicFolder "\My Public Folder" -Server "My Server"
    
    noteNote:
    The Server parameter specifies the identity of a Mailbox server with a public folder database that is the source of the replication.

For detailed syntax and parameter information, see the Update-PublicFolder (RTM) reference topic.
