Virus Scanning and Database Corruption Might Occur While Replicating Public Folders

In the Microsoft Exchange Server, public folders have great importance. It not only contains user data, but also contains critical system information, which is required for smooth operation of Exchange Server environment. For effective management and better performance of public folders, the replication process is carried out. There are two types of replication is possible- Hierarchy replication or Content replication. In some cases, replicating the public folders between Microsoft Exchange Server could sometimes be troublesome and thus cause several inconsistencies in the database and make it inaccessible. This behavior of MS Exchange database Server might cause serious data loss situations, which require Exchange Repair using appropriate tools.

In a practical scenario, when a computer system that is running MS Exchange Server 2003 sends the public folder replication, email scanning might occur. You might also come across the corruption of Messaging Database at the same time. At this point, you may receive the below given error message:

“Multiple edits have been made. The conflicting edits have been attached to the conflict message.”

At this point, the Server public folders might become inconsistent and inaccessible. It causes critical database corruption and data loss circumstances. You need to find out that cause of this issue and go for Exchange Repair to sort out this problem.

Root of the problem

This issue might take place when a database transaction is inappropriately written due to an error, which causes an unbalanced Exchange Server transaction state. The unbalanced state of transaction allows virus scanning to be carried out on the outbound replication emails if the virus scanning is enabled. The unbalanced state of transaction might also result into the database corruption.
