Hi Swamy,

-RpcClientAccessServer is not a parameter of " Set-publicfolderDatabase" cmd

-RpcClientAccessServer can be run with " Set-MailboxDatabase"

Note: We no need to configure RpcClientAccessServer for publicfolderDatabase since OL is not connecting the public folders through the CAS Servers.





Thanks Hari,
My casarray was configured as casarray.india.contoso.com initially. I just changed the casarray to casarray.contoso.com. i just run the command to change for MBX DB but cannot do so for the PUB DB. The pub db is still refering to casarray.india.contoso.com.

I created Deleted the old PUB DB and created a new one, even the new one is also refelecing the old cas array casarray.india.contoso.com

For the Public Folder connection, it still goes to the mailbox server not CAS server. It uses the RPC Client Access service on the Mailbox Server to build the connection.

You cannot use the RPCClientAccessServer parameter to set the Public Folder Database.
