I noticed some event log errors after removing an Exchange 2007 Public Folder server from our Exchange environment. An EXBPA scan contained a warning that SiteFolderServer had been deleted. This didn’t seem to be causing any user issues that we were aware of so it was essentially more of a cleanup iten after removing older Exchange servers from the environment
The site-wide public folder database for administrative group ‘Exchange Administrative Group (FYDIBOHF23SPDLT) has been deleted. Current public folder store: ‘CN=PFDatabase\0ADEL:c21rlk7c-92g4-6gws-g5th-hm28em098w89,CN=Deleted Objects,CN=Configuration,DC=domain,DC=com’
In order to resolve this you will need to modify the SiteFolderServer attribute for your administrative group:
CN=Configuration,DC=Domain,DC=com, CN=Services, CN=Microsoft Exchange, CN=OrgName, CN=Administrative Groups, CN=Exchange Administrative Group (FYDIBOHF23SPDLT), CN=Databases
Locate a PF database that will remain in your environment and right click it, then go to properties. Locate the distinguished name of this public folder, edit it and copy it to a text file. Once completed go to the following:
CN=Configuration,CN=domain,CN=com, CN=Services, CN=Microsoft Exchange, CN=OrgName, CN=Administrative Groups
Right click the administrative group, go to properties, and find siteFolderServer. Click edit and paste the Public folder DN that we pastwer into the notepad file earlier. Click OK, then OK again on the Admin Group properties. Re-running an EXBPA scan should no longer show this as an issue.
