Mail and Public folder replication not flowing between Exchange 2003 and newly installed 2007 ?

Then it might be because the Routing Group Connector (RGC) that should be automatically created during installation of the first Exchange 2007 Hub Server role somehow wasn't created (Took me more time to figure out than I'm ready to admit ;-)

If you open ESM on Exchange 2003 it should look like this ("Borrowed" from TechNet illustration) -



If the connectors aren't there, then you can create them from Exchange Management Shell as described in the article How to Create Routing Group Connectors from Exchange 2007 to Exchange Server 2003".

Creating the RGC between the legacy and E2K7 routing groups via the ESM 2003/2000 console is not supported. You must use the New-RoutingGroupConnector cmdlet in the EMS.

Hi Henrik,

Thanks for the comment. I have changed the posting to reflect the supported method.

Thanks for that information. I've been tearing my hair out trying to find out why my public folders weren't replicating.

So what if the default RGCs between 07 and 03 are present and you're still having PF replication issues? :)
