Running ExFolders in Exchange 2010 server generates following errors.
An error occurred while trying to establish a connection to the Exchange Server. Exception The Active Directory Use wasn't found. The reason for this error is “empty Servers container” present within the “old admin groups” within the Exchange organization. To be clear what needs to be deleted is “Empty Servers Container” and leaving old administrator group alone. The issue described is also most likely is causing PF replication issues in your organization and most common reason of this issue is completing Exchange 2003 migration by taking out last Exchange 2003 server from environment.
The fix is fairly simple , open ADSI Edit Connect to Configuration Partition and delete the empty Servers container ONLY!!!!
- CN=Microsoft Exchange
- CN=Administrative Groups
- CN=Messaging Servers
save the changes and verify the ExFolders works as expected and the issue with PF replication is no longer exist. It is pretty safe to delete the empty server container as long as you wont mess with Old administrator group alone.
