Stop or start Public Folder replication in 2003 vs. 2007
In Part 2, we discussed how to synchronize the hierarchy or Public Folders. But, that does nothing for the content. Sometimes there may be a need to stop the or start the replication of Public Folder content. When? Well, hopefully, you won’t need to do it, but there are times when you might have what we call a Public Folder storm. That is when massive replication might be happening because of a client deleting a huge portion of your content or a large number of changes were made that would trigger this.
In Exchange 2003, to stop all replication of content in your organization, you would right click on the Organization container and choose the option you wanted.
In Exchange 2007, this can only be done via the EMS. There is no way to do this from the GUI. To stop it you would use Suspend-PublicFolderReplication.
To Resume Public Folder Replication… Wait for it… You would use… Resume-PublicFolderReplication! Surprise!
