Schedule + Free Busy not replicated

By m2web ·
We have 3 sites which are suppose to be replicating Free/Busy info to each other's site
(each site is in a separate domain. All domains have 2 way trusts established and site
connectors between each site/messaging and dir. sync is working fine). We have
this problem in that sites B & C can view each other's Free/busy but
not site A's, while site A can view Free/busy of all 3 sites. What's odd is
that while server A's Free/Busy "Replicas tab" has both sites B & C chosen
under "Replicate Folders to", it doesn't list any servers under the "Folder
Replication Status" tab. When viewing the "Instances" tab in both B & C's
PubIS properties, they both list site A's Free/Busy....but, when you view
the Public Folder Resources tab it lists 0items and 0 K for site A's
Free/Busy, as if it's creating a placeholder, but never populating it with
the data. After upping the logging level for the Pub. I've noticed no
outgoing messages from site A to site B or C, while site A receives
incoming messages regularly from them. As a test, we created a new public
folder on site A and replicated that to site B & C successfully and that did
trigger MSExchangePubReplication Outgoing logs....but still no Site A
Free/busy info replicated to sites B & C. Have also tried removing the
replica instances in site B & C...waited until they cleared and dir. was
sync'd, then retried replicating, again to no avail. MS has suggested a utility that will reset the ID number in Exchange's Schema for Schedule+Free Busy but using this utility will wipe the entire data from everyones calender. We have calenders that have recurring schedules and can not be touched.
Anyone has any idea?
