Use the New Public Folder Database page of the New Public Folder Database wizard to enter the information necessary to create a new public folder database. A public folder database is a database that stores public folders, indexes their contents, and assists in the replication of the folders with other Exchange servers. A public folder database is stored as an Exchange database (.edb) file.
Before you use this wizard, be aware that a server can contain only one public folder database.
|You can perform some public folder database management tasks (including this one) in the Exchange Management Console. However, all other public folder management tasks are performed in the Exchange Management Shell. For more information about creating public folder databases in the Exchange Management Shell, see New-PublicFolderDatabase (RTM).|
To run this wizard, the account you use must be delegated the following:
- Exchange Server Administrator role and local Administrators
group for the target server
For more information about permissions, delegating roles, and the rights that are required to administer Exchange Server 2007, see Permission Considerations.
|Creating the first public folder database in an organization requires Exchange Organization Administrators permissions.|
