Configuring Information Stores

Add a Public Folder Store

The public folder store is a storage device for a server's public folders. Exchange supports multiple public folder stores. Each public folder store is contained in a storage group.

Note   A public folder store cannot be created without first creating a public folder hierarchy in which to store it. The only other property required when adding a public folder store is the public folder name.

To add a public folder store:

  1. Start System Manager
    On the Start menu, point to Programs, point to Microsoft Exchange, and then click System Manager.
  2. Open the Servers container in the console tree.
