When you use the Forms Administrator to create Organizational Forms Libraries, you must consider the different languages that clients use to access those libraries.

If multiple copies of the Organizational Forms Library (that is located in the Eforms Registry Systems Folder) exist for the same language, you may experience the following behavior:

  • Users may not be able to synchronize their .ost files.
  • Users may have problems with system messages.
  • Users may not be able to connect to the information store.


Multiple copies of the Organizational Forms Library can be created if:

  • You create an Organizational Forms Library in separate sites first and then run directory replication between these sites.
  • In a decentralized scenario in which a local instance of the remote Organizational Forms Library does not exist, a user with Administrator rights creates another library with the same language by using the Forms Administrator in the Exchange Server Administrator program.

Organizational Forms Libraries are designed to function as one library for each language for each Exchange Server organization, with replication or affinity configured for remaining servers across all sites within the organization. If multiple copies of the same language of an Organizational Form Library exists, consolidate them into one library.
