Is there any way of creating a public folder calendar using the Exchange Management Shell?

Outlook is not installed on the Exchange Server nor do I want to install it. Access is very limited to client computers so I would rather create it from the server itself. Surely it can't be that difficult to do?

I have tried using the PFDAVAdmin tool but it fails to connect despite numerous attempts and I have given up on it for now.

Well, the creation is possible with a cmdlet - new-publicfolder. As you can see, there's no EMS syntax for setting that folder's data type, though you could Add-PublicFolderAdministrativePermission, allowing the user to do what's needed at that point through Outlook.

As far as I know, you can only use Outlook to create public folders for different content types than messages.
