Consider the following scenario:
If you use the Public Folder Management Console, you receive the following error message in a dialog box:
Public folder Public Folder in the child domain isn't mail-enabled.
+ CategoryInfo : NotSpecified: (:) [Get-MailPublicFolder], ManagementObjectNotFoundException
+ FullyQualifiedErrorId : ID,Microsoft.Exchange.Management.MapiTasks.GetMailPublicFolder
For example, you have a mail-enabled public folder that has the "child1@childDomain03.forest.com" SMTP address and that is stored on an Exchange Server 2003 server in the "childDomain03" child domain of a forest. Assume that you try to manage the public folder from the "childDomain10" domain that is an Exchange Server 2010 child domain of the same forest. In this scenario, this issue occurs.
Public folder Public Folder in the child domain isn't mail-enabled. It was running the command 'Get-MailPublicFolder -Identity MailPublicFolderIDParameter -Server ServerIdParameter'.
This issue occurs because Exchange Server 2010 does not connect to a global catalog (GC) to create the ADRecipientSession session when it executes the Get-MailPublicFolder cmdlet.
To resolve this issue that occurs when you use the Public Folder Management Console, install the following update rollup:
(http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2645995/ )Description of Update Rollup 1 for Exchange Server 2010 Service Pack 2
Note This update does not resolve the issue that occurs when you use EMS. To work around this issue that occurs in EMS, see the "Workaround" section.
To work around this issue, use EMS to run the Set-ADServerSettings -ViewEntireForest $true cmdlet, and then run the Get-MailPublicFolder cmdlet.
Note This workaround does not work if you use the Public Folder Management Console.
Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed in the "Applies to" section.
