Set the Replication Schedule for a Public Folder Database

Applies to: Exchange Server 2010

Topic Last Modified: 2011-03-19

After you determine which public folders you want to replicate and the databases on which they will be replicated, you can set the public folder database replication schedule. By default, public folder replication is scheduled to run every 15 minutes. You can select precanned replication intervals, or you can create a custom schedule. For more information about how to configure the list of public folder databases to which public folders will replicate, see Configure Public Folder Replication.

This topic shows you how to use the Exchange Management Console (EMC) or the Exchange Management Shell to set the public folder replication schedule for a public folder database.

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

  1. In the console tree, navigate to Organization Configuration > Mailbox.
  2. In the result pane, click the Database Management tab, and then click the public folder database you want to configure.
  3. In the action pane, click Properties.
  4. In <Public Folder Database> Properties, click the Replication tab.
  5. In the Replication interval list, the following options are available:
    • Always Run   The replication process is initiated during the replication interval that's specified in the Replication interval for "Always Run" (minutes) box.
    • Never Run   The public folder database isn't replicated.
    • Run every hour   The replication process is initiated every hour.
    • Run every 2 hours   The replication process is initiated every 2 hours.
    • Run every 4 hours   The replication process is initiated every 4 hours.
    • Use Custom Schedule   The replication process uses the customized schedule that you create in Step 8.
  6. Click Customize to create a customized schedule.

    If you use a customized schedule, you must select Use Custom Schedule from the Replication interval list.
  7. To set the schedule, click the time grid in the Schedule dialog box. Public folder replication will run during the time slots that you specify. You can select the same time slot every day by clicking a column header for a specific time slot. You can select an entire day by clicking the name of that day.
    Bb629665.note(en-us,EXCHG.140).gifNote:
    The default time slot for the grid is one hour. For finer control, you can change the schedule grid to 15 minute intervals by clicking 15 minute. Scheduled intervals must be at least 15 minutes apart.
  8. Click OK to close the Schedule dialog box.
  9. Click OK to close the <Public Folder Database> Properties dialog box and to save your changes.

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

This example creates a customized public folder replication schedule for the public folder database PFDatabase that resides on Server01.

Set-PublicFolderDatabase -Identity "Server01\PFDatabase" -ReplicationSchedule "Sun.12:01 AM-Sun.3:15 AM, Tue.12:00 AM-Tue.3:15 AM, Thu.12:00 AM-Thu.3:15 AM"
