creating public folders in Exchange 2000

I am unable to create a public folder with the Exchange System Manager within Microsoft Exchange 2000. I installed Windows 2000 Advanced Server and then promoted my computer as a domain controller with Active Directory. I prepped the forest as well as the domain and installed Exchange 2000. I installed Windows 2000 Advanced Server onto another computer and promoted that one as an additional domain controller for the same domain. I also followed the same steps to install Exchange 2000 onto that computer. Everything seems to work fine - both computers can communicate and both computers can administer Active Directory from the other. My problem right now is that when I try to create a new public folder with the Exchange System Manager, nothing happens at all when i right-click Public Folders...go to New...and then select Public Folder...I don't even get an error message stating i do not have enough permissions because I already made sure that i do have the permissions to create a public folder. I have the same problem on my additional domain controller. Everything seems to work fine except that nothing pops up when i try to create a new public folder. I'm wondering if there is anything I can do without having to install windows and promote all over again....help me.

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Probably a stupid troubleshooting step, but right-click on Public Folders and select Properties. See if you’re actually connecting to the Exchange server.

    Open up an ADSI MMC. (http://www.computerperformance.co.uk/Logon/LDAP_attributes_ADSIEdit.htm) Connect to the "Configuration" Naming Context. Drill down to: Services Microsoft Exchange (Your Exchange Org Name) Administrative Groups (Your Administrative Group) Servers (Your Server Name) InformationStore (Your Storage Group) See if it lists your public store(s).
