In some cases you are forced to hard-remove public folders from Exchange. You can use ADSI Edit to delete these folders.

 

Exchange 2010

 

Open ADSI-Edit and got to configuration

 

Navigate to this path:

 

CN=Configuration,DC=DOMAIN,DC=LOCAL

CN=Services

CN=Microsoft Exchange

CN=EXCHANGE_ORG

CN=Administrative Groups

CN=Exchange Administrative Group (FYDIBOHF23SPDLT)

CN=Databases

CN=PUBLIC_FOLDER_DATABASE

 

Now you can delete the PF-Database you want to get rid off.

 

Exchange 2007

 

Open ADSI-Edit and got to configuration

 

Navigate to this path:

 

CN=Configuration,DC=DOMAIN,DC=LOCAL

CN=Services

CN=Microsoft Exchange

CN=EXCHANGE_ORG

CN=Administrative Groups

CN=Exchange Administrative Group (FYDIBOHF23SPDLT)

CN=Servers

CN=SERVERNAME

CN=InformationStore

CN=STORAGE_GROUP

CN=PUBLIC_FOLDER_DATABASE

 

Now you can delete the PF-Database you want to get rid off.

 

Exchange 2003

 

Open ADSI-Edit and got to configuration

 

Navigate to this path:

 

CN=Configuration,DC=DOMAIN,DC=LOCAL

CN=Services

CN=Microsoft Exchange

CN=EXCHANGE_ORG

CN=Administrative Groups

CN=First administrative Group

CN=Servers

CN=SERVERNAME

CN=InformationStore

CN=STORAGE_GROUP

CN=PUBLIC_FOLDER_DATABASE

 

Now you can delete the PF-Database you want to get rid off.

  • Hello Mukut,

    Good Article.
    But want to highlight one more thing. Once you delete the Public folder database directly from adsiedit then there are many entries in adsiedit which will point to "Deleted objects" like sitefolderserver.
    Also mention to correct those settings
    Sitefolderserver
