I’m onto my last leg of testing my deployment of Exchange 2007 SP1 with HMC 4.5 RU 5. During the install I created a problem with the public folder deployment, and oab. I’ve since corrected that problem because my OAB is deploying both through Public Folders
and WEB Distribution and public folders are accessible.
However, during that process I’ve now got a ghost public folder being seen the provisioning database. I suppose in hind sight, I should have de-allocated the public folder in the provisioning system prior to the manual removal of the public folder from
In an attempt to the fix the problem, I’ve attempted to perform the DeallocatePublic folder in Managed Exchange 2007 samples, and the process says it completes successful but yet the resource still remains. I’ve also ran initializations of the namespace
again as an attempt to relink the Public folder, or atleast mark it UnProvisionable.
Any ideas on how to fix the problem?

Wanted to expound on this a little:
The system is complaining when i try to create a new mailbox, and the last error i'm seeing on a trace is listing the guid for the now gone Public Folder and that it's unable to find the resource. I'm obtaining the guid by performing a QueryAllExchangeResources,

Diffferent problem now, Outlook is working in Outlook clients as expected. I can create folders, view them, assign permissions and they are scoped correctly..
However, the top of the public folder tree, including the public folder button in owa isn't visible. If i log into OWA with the administrator account, i get the public folder button and access where granted.
I've checked permissions in IIS on the EXMBXOAB01 server and it's right. I know it's a permission issue somewhere but i can't figure out where. I've tried to assign permissions to the root public folder with reviewer access because only Anon and Default
have reviewer permissions but it made no difference.
Anyone have any other ideas.

You probably have subscribed to a plan that disallow public folder in OWA.
Run a ModifyMailbox and set owaPublicFoldersEnabled to 1 for a specific mailbox.
