  • Ex2010-Error: 14029 free-busy replica

    Hi,

    i'm in the middle of a migration from an sbs2003 std box to a windows 2008R2+Ex 2010 sp1 box.

    I've already setup the new exchange server, moved a couple of test users and everything seems fine.

    After replicating the public mailbox ( i didnt moved the replica yet from the old server to the new one ) i get this error in my eventvwr.

    Source: MsExchangeMailboxAssistants
    EventID: 14029
    Couldn't find an Exchange 2010 or later public folder server with a replica for the free/busy folder: EX:/o=$DOMAINNAME/ou=First Administrative Group.

    But if i check with the exchange shell with the following command:
    Get-PublicFolder "\non_ipm_subtree\schedule+ free busy" -recurse |fl name,*rep*

    i get:
    ************************************************** **********
    Name : SCHEDULE+ FREE BUSY
    LocalReplicaAgeLimit :
    Replicas : {}
    ReplicationSchedule : {}
    UseDatabaseReplicationSchedule : True

    Name : EX:/o=$DOMAINNAME/ou=Exchange Administrative Group (FYDIBOHF23SPDLT)
    LocalReplicaAgeLimit :
    Replicas : {Public Folder Database}
    ReplicationSchedule : {}
    UseDatabaseReplicationSchedule : True

    Name : EX:/O=$DOMAINNAME/OU=EXTERNAL (FYDIBOHF25SPDLT)
    LocalReplicaAgeLimit :
    Replicas : {Public Folder Database}
    ReplicationSchedule : {}
    UseDatabaseReplicationSchedule : True

    Name : EX:/o=$DOMAINNAME/ou=first administrative group
    LocalReplicaAgeLimit :
    Replicas : {Public Folder Database, $server2003name\Primo gruppo di archiviazione\Archivio cartella pubblica ($server2003name)}
    ReplicationSchedule : {}
    UseDatabaseReplicationSchedule : True
    ************************************************** **********

    For what i'm seeing, the identity to which the error is referenced ( EX:/o=$DOMAINNAME/ou=first administrative group ) is correctly replicated:

    Replicas : {Public Folder Database, $server2003name\Primo gruppo di archiviazione\Archivio cartella pubblica ($server2003name)}

    The clients ( outlook 2003 - 2010 ) sees other users free\busy infos without problem.
    I've searched on the 'net and found nothing that can resolve this issue.


    I dont know why i get this message even if the replica is working correctly.

    Thanks in advance

    How do you know replication is working correctly?
    The only valid test is item count.

    get-publicfolderstatistics

    Anything else is just telling you it is configured, nothing more.

    Public Folders should be replicated before any mailboxes are moved, otherwise you get problems, particularly with Outlook 2003 clients.

      Hi Simon,

      thanks for the reply.

      Yes, the two public folder structure and content replicates correctly, as test (before any mbox migration) i've created a public folder with some elements from a user with mailbox on the source ex2003 server, and after the replica time it appears on the public folders on the ex2010 server.

      The powershell command, retrieves the correct structure and number of elements of my public folder hierarchy.

      If i use the public folder mgmt gui, i see this:

      Public system folder "scheduler free+busy" properties, under replica tab, i dont see any replica entry and if i try to add any entry as replica server, i get an error that the "scheduler free+busy" folder cannot be modified.

      I dont know if this would help, but accessing the properties of the subfolder "EX:/o=$DOMAINNAME/ou=first administrative group" under alias and in other tabs i get an error regarding the alias filed containing some non standard characters.

      I recall that some time ago, assisting on a migration from 2003->2007 some mailbox\public folder alias should be corrected so that they didn't include non standard characters in the alias filed, but that didn't impact on the functionality of the folder\mailbox.

        Under the root Schedule Free Busy Folder there should be at least one sub folder. That is the folder that needs to have the replica on. However if you are getting errors with invalid characters then that may well be the cause of your problems. The folder may have to be recreated.

          Re: Ex2010-Error: 14029 free-busy replica

          Hi Simom,

          After rebooting the server due to the installation of windows updates, the message is gone.

          Maybe it required a restart of some services related to the public folder ( information store ?)

          Now it seems all ok.

          btw, Thanks for the support.


          Best Regards

          Stefano

            Database related issues can often be cleared by simply restarting the information store service, so that might have been all that it needed.
