Exchange 2010 public folders “Not available on this server”
February 15, 2011 Leave a comment
If you are in co-existence between 2003->2010 SP1 then you may see a message in the Exchange Console when using the public folder tool that states “Not available on this server” when viewing the public folder statistics. This does NOT necesserily mean that replication is not occuring. There is a bug in the GUI in that it is missing the “-resultsize unlimited” portion of the powershell command that runs in the background. This means that only the first 100 public folders that are parsed will have data available in the statistics page. If you use the Exchange Shell you will be able to manually specify the -resultsize unlimited portion of the get-publicfolderstatistics cmdlet and retrieve all the information.
An article relating to this can be found at a Technet blog found here – http://blogs.technet.com/b/bill_long/archive/2010/10/28/get-publicfolderstatistics-can-t-find-a-folder.aspx?CommentPosted=true#commentmessage
