  • Public Folder Replication - Connection forcibly closed by remote host

    I'm really struggling here.
    Added a new exchange 03 server to storage group.
    attempting to move public folders so I can remove/decommission the old exchange server.
    need to get the OAB folders as users can't get new mail without them.

    When I right click any public folder and select properties ESM hangs a while then throws:
    An existing connection was forcibly closed by the remote host

    Facility: Win32
    ID no: c0072746
    Exchange System Manager

    Now, I've searched and found several responses for this.
    Some say SSL in IIS. Tried adding port 443 and made sure ignore client certs is on and restarted IIS... no luck.

    Tried pfmigrate but oddly the /r flag only found 3 public folders available for replication. These are already being replicated.
    none of the OAB folders are listed.

    I've tried Move All Replicas from old system but get the same above error.

    I'm really at a loss here... Anyone ever solve this problem?

    Thanks

    It would appear that you have actually have two problems here.
    EMC issues with public folders are almost certainly down to IIS issues.
    However that shouldn't affect public folder replication.

    Start by resetting the virtual directories:

    Ensure hta tnothing is blocking or scanning the SMTP traffic between the two servers and that you do not have a smart host set on the SMTP virtual server.
