Public folders, getting replicas on Exchange 2007

To resolve this issue configure your Exchange Server 2007 public folder store to be a replica for the public folder content. You can view the current list of replicas for a public folder with the Get-PublicFolder cmdlet.

[PS] C:\>Get-Publicfolder "\NameOfFolder" | fl name,replicas

Name : NameOfFolder
Replicas : {Public Folders}

To see all public folders you can do a recursive search.

[PS] C:\>Get-Publicfolder \ -Recurse | fl name,replicas

Replicas : {}

Name : NameOfFolder
Replicas : {Public Folders}

Name : NameOfNextFolder
Replicas : {Public Folders}

Public folder replicas can be managed with the Set-Publicfolder cmdlet. The “replicas” attribute is multi-valued, and the Set-Publicfolder cmdlet will set it but not append to it, so you must include any existing replicas that you want to retain in the list.

[PS] C:\>Get-PublicFolder -recurse | Set-PublicFolder -Replicas "SERVER1\Public Folders","SERVER2\Public Folders","SERVER3\Public Folders"

The public folder content will replicate to the new replicas using the configured public folder replication interval. If you wish to do an update manually to speed things up you can use the Update-Publicfolder cmdlet.

Once the public folder store is listed as a replica and the content has replicated the Exchange Server 2007 SP1 mailbox users will be able to access the content in Outlook Web Access.
