Object is read only because it was created by a future version of Exchange: 0.10 (14.0.100.0). Current supported version is 0.1 (x.x.x.x) when trying to delete Public Folder Database


When you try to remove Public Folder Database from Exchange 2007 server you get
Object is read only because it was created by a future version of Exchange: 0.10 (14.0.100.0). Current supported version is 0.1 (x.x.x.x)
Since you don’t see Exchange 2007 Public Folders Database in Exchange 2010 GUI, you must open Exchange Management Shell on your Exchange 2010 server and run following command:
  1. Get-PublicFolderDatabase –Server YOUREXCHANGE2007SERVERNAME (this is just security measure not to delete some other database)
  2. If Public Folder Database name is correct than run

    Get-PublicFolderDatabase –Server YOUREXCHANGE2007SERVERNAME | Remove-PublicFolderDatabase

  1. OK, its been a while since this article but Exchange 2013 throws a spanner in the works in that whilst it causes exactly the same error, because it no longer has public folder databases (it just uses the normal mailbox database instead) the Remove-PublicFolderDatabase command no longer exists?!

    HEEEEELLLPPP!!!

  2. @Anonymous - You must provide more data...
    1. Are you migrating from earlier version?
    2. Have you followed all the steps during the migration process?
    3. You created Public Folder database as suggested from Microsoft's technical articles? (it is important because you need to "attach" folder tree to newly created database before you delete old public folder databases - check http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/jj150486.aspx)

    If you just want to delete old public folder database and you are SURE about all the necessary steps of migration process, which you executed correctly, you could delete public folder database using ADSIEdit.

Change SMTP port 25 in Exchange 2007, 2010

For some reason you might want to change default SMTP port number 25 Exchange 2007 is using. Exchange 2007 uses RECEIVE AND SEND connectors, one for receiving mails and other for sending mails (obviously ;) So you need to change ports on those connectors. I will not say those two, because you might be using more than two. You change Receive connector port by opening the connector properties in Exchange Management Console --> Hub Transport --> RECEIVECONNECTORNAME --> Properties --> Network --> Local IP Addresses (Edit Receive Connector Binding) Just to clarify what "Local IP Addresses" and "Remote Servers" are (from Exchange 2007 help), because I find it little bit confusing: Use these local IP Addresses to receive mail Use this list to specify the IP addresses and port numbers on which this Receive connector listens for incoming mail. Receive mail from remote servers which have these IP addresses Use this list to specify the

Netscaler vs Exchange 2019 "time out during ssl handshake stage

If you are using Citrix Netscaler as load balancer in front of Exchange 2019 server you must know this: Microsoft Exchange 2019 is secured by default and allows only TLS 1.2. Therefore default schannel settings are as follows (using IISCrypto tool from Nartac Software): While Citrix Netscaler offers following Cipher Suites: TLS_RSA_WITH_AES_256_CBC_SHA TLS_RSA_WITH_AES_128_CBC_SHA TLS_DHE_RSA_WITH_AES_256_CBC_SHA TLS_DHE_RSA_WITH_AES_128_CBC_SHA TLS_DHE_DSS_WITH_AES_256_CBC_SHA TLS_DHE_DSS_WITH_AES_128_CBC_SHA TLS_RSA_WITH_DES_CBC_SHA TLS_RSA_EXPORT_WITH_DES40_CBC_SHA TLS_RSA_EXPORT_WITH_RC2_CBC_40_MD5 TLS_DHE_DSS_WITH_DES_CBC_SHA TLS_DHE_DSS_EXPORT1024_WITH_DES_CBC_SHA TLS_DHE_DSS_EXPORT_WITH_DES40_CBC_SHA TLS_DHE_RSA_WITH_DES_CBC_SHA TLS_DHE_RSA_EXPORT_WITH_DES40_CBC_SHA TLS_RSA_EXPORT1024_WITH_RC2_CBC_56_MD5 TLS_DH_anon_WITH_DES_CBC_SHA TLS_DH_anon_WITH_AES_128_CBC_SHA TLS_DH_anon_WITH_AES_256_CBC_SHA TLS_DH_anon_EXPORT_WITH_DES40_CBC_SHA Now, you will fi
