Exchange 2007 SCR question
Posted on 2009-07-06
I just had a question about Exchange 2007 Standby Continuous replication....I want to enable SCR but when i give the command
Restore-StorageGroupCopy vmmbx1\vmmbx1-sg2 -StandbyMachine Scrtarget -force
Now, the above command requires the source Exchange Server to be dismounted (or disconnected from network) to work; will not work otherwise ... I was under the impression that in case of failure I only need to give the following command
Get-Mailbox -Database vmmbx1 ... | where ... | move-mailbox
But now I think I need to give all the commands starting from
2. Use Eseutil utility
3. Move storagegroup path and movedatabase path
4. Setmailboxdatabase and mount and finally the get-mailbox-cmdlet ...
So Am I doing all these steps 1-4 in case of failure (because I certainly cant give restore-storagegroupcopystatus command) as long as the primary exchange doesnt go down ... So thats the confusion ... Do I give all 4 commands or just the last command of get-mailbox-cmdlet ...
Sorry if i cant make it clear, let me know in case anything is unclear !
