To create a new collection for an existing public folder synchronization job, right-click the job in the management tree and select Add Collection from the shortcut menu.
This will start the Add Public Folder Collection Wizard, which will help you to set up and configure a new collection for the job. Each of the wizard’s steps is described in the related topics.
Step 1. General Options
Specify a name for the collection and set its priority. Optionally, you can provide a text description for the collection.
You can temporarily disable the collection and it will not be involved in the synchronization process until you enable it.
Step 2. Workflow
Set the preferred date to start migrating the collection. By default, the option to Start as soon as possible is selected.
Step 3. Select Public Folders
Populate the collection with public folder pairs. Note that folders that are already synchronized within other collections of the job are marked in the folder lists and cannot be included in the collection.
Caution: Once you start the public folder synchronization process, do not change the synchronization roots for any jobs or collections. Changing the selected folder pairs after the synchronization has started might result in duplicate folders in one of the environments.
Step 4. Complete the Wizard and Commit Changes
After the new collection is created, the job is marked with an exclamation mark that means that you need to update the public folder synchronization agents’ databases. Right-click the job in the management tree and click Commit Changes on the shortcut menu to update the agents’ task lists on the remote servers.
