We have a win 2003 server running exchange 2003. Recently we stopped the Exchange services running on our other Exchange server (this is a 5.5) as we are about to decommission it and disabled the AD Connector. The problem we are having is that since this was done some users' free / busy information is not available. All we have is a grey line where is should be with diagonal lines. This problem affects only some users and not otheres. For example i can see some users busy /free schedules but my manager cannot see the same. All users are running outlook 2003 sp2 in cached mode. We have not restarted the afore mentioned services etc as we want to delete the 5.5 server from the Exchange site soon. I have not run guidgen yet as i wanted some opinions 1st.... Any help would be great as this is a tricky 1. Thanks

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

The free/busy information is contained in the Schedule+ folder in your public folders.

Before stopping the services on the 5.5 server, did you go into the public folder list for that server and replicate the schedule+ folder to your other exchange server(s)?

Once that has replicated over you should have no problem accessing that information again.

    Hi technochic That worked, thanks for that! I restarted the Exchange 5.5 services and rehomed the schedule+ and OAB folders to the 2003 exchange server and let replication do its thing - all worked fine after that! Much appreciated!
