deleted from Active Directory. use the ADSI Edit, or a similar tool (LDP), to determine whether the Public

Folders container exists. The Public folder object can be found at:

Thủ tục xử lý

The workaround is to manually create a new msExchPFTree object in the Folder Hierarchy and set the msExchPFTreeType value to 1.  Here’s how to do that:

  • Run ADSIEdit.msc on a domain server with the AD Directory Services Tools (RSAT-ADDS) installed.  Your Exchange 2013 server should do fine.
  • Expand the following path:
    • Configuration [<domainController>]
    • CN=Configuration,DC=contoso,DC=com
    • CN=Services
    • CN=Microsoft Exchange
    • CN=<OrganizationName>
    • CN=Administrative Groups
    • CN=Exchange Administrative Group (FYDIBOHF23SPDLT)
    • CN=Folder Hierarchies
  • Right-click Folder Hierarchies and select New Object.
  • Select the msExchPFTree class object and click Next.
  • Enter any value for the cn (Common Name) value, such as PF.
  • Right-click the newly created msExchPFTree object and select Properties.
  • On the Attribute Editor tab, click msExchPFTreeType, and then click Edit.
  • In the Value box type 1, and then click OK two times.

Exit the ADSI Edit tool.
