Forcing Public-Folder Replications


How can I force new public-folder replicas to replicate across my Exchange Server organization?

If you're using Exchange Server 2003, open Exchange System Manager (ESM), right-click the public folder, and use the Send Contents command to force the folder's data to replicate. Or you can use the Exchange_PublicFolder class's Send Changes method to force replication, as the script in Listing 1—adapted from the forthcoming Exchange Cookbook (O'Reilly & Associates, 2005)—does. You can also use the latter method with Exchange 2000 Server; I don't know of a method to force public-folder replication in Exchange Server 5.5.
