Missing Free/Busy information



The solution to this problem is fairly simple, as long as the person is comfortable with ADSIEDIT.MSC. It takes some time to work with this toll to make the changes within the NTDS.DIT database, and needs attention since deleting the whole org would be very easy to achieve, so please be very careful when you get there.


 

Problem:

Users are not able to see others Free/Busy information, Group colander is no longer functioning

History:

The Client went through a migration from Exchange 2000 and Exchange 2003. Prior to migration all free/Busy information seems to be working fine, after the migration Client releases the group calendar, is no longer functioning.

Solution:

The attribute "SiteFolderServer" has the old Server name, and this information need to be updated to a new server follow the article span>284200

You will need ADSIEDIT.MSC installed on the server

The attribute "SiteFolderServer" is located

  • Configuration Container [Computer.Domain.Com]
  • CN=Configuration, DC=(YourDomainController),DC=com
  • CN=Services
  • CN=Microsoft Exchange
  • CN=(YourOrganization)
  • CN=Administrative Groups
  • CN=(YourAdministrativeGroup)

Locate the attribute make sure the name of the server is NOT matching to a current server

Now you need to place the valid Value

Go to

  • Configuration Container [Computer.Domain.Com]
  • CN=Configuration, DC=(YourDomainController),DC=com
  • CN=Services
  • CN=Microsoft Exchange
  • CN=(YourOrganization)
  • CN=Administrative Groups
  • CN=(YourAdministrativeGroup)
  • CN=(Servers)
  • CN=(YourServer)
  • CN=InformationStore
  • CN=First Storage Group

Go to property locate the
distinguishedName, copy it and paste it into , SiteFolderServer properties

Exit out from ADSIEDIT.MSC
