Failover of echange 2007 CCR

Posted on 2008-11-08
Last Modified: 2012-05-05
I have 2 servers which are setup in a cluster with a cross cable connecting them. The exchange 2007 MB role is installed. When I move the storage groups from one server to the next the failover works but if I run eseutil /mh it shows that the storage groups on each server are in a dirty  shutdown state. The routing of mail works fine nd users have no problem but how do I get it to say clean shutdown. I donot want to use eseutil /p.

    1. First of all, how do you intend to fail over between these clusters - using shell / cluster admin console?
    2. If you end up with eseutil /mh - dirty shutdown, Next most valuable information to check is log file required status.
    3. If this shows an information about certain number of log files (which are present on the server including e00.log) - you may run the eseutil /r "path to the e00.log"
    4. This should bring the database to clean shutdown state and definitely mountable.
    Hope this helps.

    Please run Eseutil /ml "Path to E03.log file (without including E03.log in this command)" >C:\missing log.txt

    So, the command should look like

    Eseutil /ml "C:\Program Files\Microsoft\Exchange Server\Mailbox\Mdbdata\Storage Group" >C:\missing log.txt

    This would give you the output of integrity check run on all the log files.
