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

Topic Last Modified: 2007-08-24

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 How to Configure Public Folder Replication.

This topic explains how to use the Exchange Management Console or the Exchange Management Shell to set the public folder replication schedule for a public folder database.

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).

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

To perform this 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

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

  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 you want.

  4. In the action pane, click Properties.

  5. In <Public Folder Database> Properties, click the Replication tab.

  6. In the Replication interval list, the following options are available:

    • Never Run   The public folder database is not replicated.
    • Always Run   The replication process is initiated during the replication interval that is specified in the Replication interval for "Always Run" (minutes) box.
    • 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.
  7. Click Customize to create a customized schedule.

    noteNote:
    If you use a customized schedule, you must select Use Custom Schedule from the Replication interval list.
  8. 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.

    noteNote:
    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.
  9. Click OK to close the Schedule dialog box.

  10. Click OK to close the <Public Folder Database> Properties dialog box and to save your changes.

  • To create a customized public folder replication schedule for the public folder database named PFDatabase that resides on Server01, run the following command.

    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"
