How to View or Modify Public Folder Database Settings

 

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

Topic Last Modified: 2007-08-16

This topic explains how to use the Exchange Management Console or the Exchange Management Shell to view or modify information about a public folder database.

importantImportant:
If more than one public folder database exists in your organization, you cannot use cluster continuous replication (CCR), local continuous replication (LCR), or standby continuous replication (SCR). LCR, CCR, and SCR are types of storage group replication. LCR and CCR are available in the release to manufacturing (RTM) version of Exchange 2007 and in Exchange 2007 Service Pack 1 (SP1); SCR is available only in Exchange 2007 SP1. If you have two or more public folder databases in your organization, public folder replication is occurring, even if you have not configured public folders to be replicated. Public folder replication and storage group replication cannot be combined. Therefore, CCR, LCR, and SCR are available for a public folder database only if there are no other public folder databases in the organization. To learn more about CCR, LCR, and SCR, see Cluster Continuous Replication, Local Continuous Replication, and Standby Continuous Replication.

To perform these procedures, the account you use must be delegated the following:

  • Exchange Server 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 Microsoft Exchange Server 2007, see Permission Considerations.

  1. Start the Exchange Management Console.

  2. In the console tree, expand Server Configuration, and then click Mailbox.

  3. In the work pane, select the public folder database that you want to view or modify.

  4. In the action pane, click Properties.

  5. In <Public Folder Database Name> Properties, use the various tabs to view or modify settings.

  6. Click OK.

  • To return the entire list of Exchange 2007 public folder databases in your organization, run the following command:

    Get-PublicFolderDatabase | fl
    
  • To return the information about the public folder database named PFDatabase that resides on Server01, run the following command:

    Get-PublicFolderDatabase -Identity "Server01\PFDatabase"
    

For detailed syntax and parameter information, see the Get-PublicFolderDatabase reference topic.

  • To set the retention settings for the public folder database named PFDatabase that resides on SERVER01, run the following command:

    Set-PublicFolderDatabase -Identity "Server01\PFDatabase" -DeletedItemRetention 07.00:00:00 -RetainDeletedItemsUntilBackup $true -EventHistoryRetentionPeriod 14.00:00:00 -ItemRetentionPeriod unlimited
    
  • To set the storage quota for all public folders in the public folder database named PFDatabase, run the following command:

    Set-PublicFolderDatabase -Identity PFDatabase -IssueWarningQuota 2000MB -QuotaNotificationSchedule "Sun.3:00 AM-Sun.3:15 AM, Tue.3:00 AM-Tue.3:15 AM, Thu.3:00 AM-Thu.3:15 AM"
    

    Using this command, public folder owners will be notified when their public folders meet the storage quota.

For detailed syntax and parameter information, see Set-PublicFolderDatabase.
