Error updating public folder with free/busy information on virtual machine MachineName. The error number is 0x80070005.

Additionally, Microsoft Office Outlook 2003 users cannot access the public folder that is hosted on the Exchange server, and the Public Folder database may be dismounted.

This issue occurs when the CN=Folder Hierarchies container is missing under the First Administrative Group or when the CN= Public Folders name does not exist under the CN=Folder Hierarchies container for the First Administrative Group in Exchange 2007.

To resolve this issue, use one or both of the following procedures.

  4. Expand CN=Configuration, CN=Services, CN=Microsoft Exchange, CN=First Organization, CN=Administrative Groups, CN=Exchange Administrative Group. If the CN=Folder Hierarchies container does not exist, you must manually create the container. To do this, follow these steps:

    1. Right-click CN=Exchange Administrative Group, click New, and then click Object.
    2. Select msExchPublicFolderTreeContainer for the class, and then click Next.
    3. In the Value box, type Folder Hierarchies, and then click Next.

    8. Click Finish.
    9. Click Start, click All Programs, click Microsoft Exchange Server 2007, and then click Exchange Management Console.
    10. In the Exchange Management Console, expand Server Configuration, and then click Mailbox.
    11. In the details pane, right-click Public Folder Database, and then click Dismount Database. After the database is dismounted, right-click Public Folder Database, and then click Mount Database.
  1. Click Start, in the Start Search box, type ADSI, and then under Programs, click ADSI Edit.

  2. In the navigation pane of ADSI Edit, right-click ADSI Edit, and then click Connect to.

  4. Expand CN=Configuration, CN=Services, CN=Microsoft Exchange, CN=First Organization, CN=Administrative Groups, CN=Exchange Administrative Group, CN=Folder Hierarchies.

  5. Verify that the CN=Public Folders item exists. If CN=Public Folders does not exist, expand CN=Configuration, CN=Services, CN=Microsoft Exchange in ADSI Edit.

  6. Right-click CN=Public Folders, and then click Move.
