How to Create a Public Folder Database in Exchange 2007


How to Create a Public Folder Database in Exchange 2007



In today’s video I will show you how to create a public folder database in Exchange 2007.
Given the best practice of putting each mailbox database in its own storage group, it is hence necessary to first create a new storage group with default settings.  Next, select the storage group, but instead of clicking on “New Mailbox Database…” select “New Public Folder Data…” instead.  This will launch the new public folder database wizard, which will prompt for a database name.  Remember to click on the “Browse…” button next to select a database file path on a drive that is not shared with the operating system, Exchange installation or Exchange log files.
As with the creation of a new mailbox database, clicking on “New” here will generate and execute the pertinent Exchange Management shell commands to create a new public folder database in Exchange 2007.  Hitting CTRL-C will make a copy of the raw commands into the system clipboard for reference.  Selecting “Finish” dismisses the dialog.
I hope you found this video helpful and you won’t have a problem to create a public folder database in Exchange 2007.
