Managing Public Folders

Add a Session for Public Folder Replication

Replication Agent uses only one configuration file. This file can contain a combination of several public folder and free and busy sessions. A session defines replication settings for one folder or one free and busy subscriber.

Note   For the complete set of steps required to create a configuration file and add sessions, see Create a Configuration File.

To add a session for public folders:

  1. Make sure you have started the Exscfg.exe program saved on the publisher or subscriber server.
  2. On the Session menu, click Add.
  3. In Select Session Type, click Public Folder(s) Replication.
  4. In Title, type a display name for the session.
  5. In Maximum Task Number, type the number of threads to use in replication.


  6. Note   As you increase the number of threads, the load on the server increases. This can reduce server performance.

  7. Click Schedule, and then type the time for each replication session to begin.
  8. For Publisher Organization, in Server, type the name of the publisher server, and then in Mailbox, type the mailbox for the Replication Agent to log on to. If the replication service account does not have permissions to this mailbox, click Advanced, click Use Alternate NT Account, and then type the username, password, and domain name of an account that is permitted to log on to the mailbox.
  9. Repeat step 6 for the subscriber organization.
  10. Select the folder list, and then click Logon for each folder list box.
  11. Using the tree controls, select the folder or folder hierarchy on the publisher server to replicate, and then select the destination folder.
  12. For each published folder, choose whether to replicate only the folder selected or the folder and its subfolders.
  13. If you select Deletions, whenever an item is deleted on the publisher, that item is deleted on the subscriber.
  14. Click Default, Anonymous, or both to replicate permissions to the destination folder.
  15. Click Add to save these settings to the folder mappings list.
