Exchange 2007 SCR Enable-StorageGroupCopy Problem

Rynstein used Ask the Experts™
Hi there,

I've got 2 CCR sites replicated, and I've just done my first failover successfully.  However, when I try to enable-storagegroupcopy back to the original ccr cluster, i get the error

"Enable-StorageGroupCopy : Could not find a directory entry for the host
At line:1 char:24
+ Enable-StorageGroupCopy  <<<< "CMS\SG01" -standbymachine servername -replaylagtime 0.0:0:0"

When I first did my failover, I noticed that I didn't have DNS registration must succeed on the cmsname, and that's now fixed.  

I've tried the following:
I had to add the DNS entry manually, as it had dissappeared after my failover
I've tried stopping and starting the cluster at my active ccr site
I've tried adding a host entry at the destination
I can run "Get-StorageGroupCopyStatus and it finds the cms, and it just comes back with "NotConfigured"

Any ideas?  

Thanks in advance!

Thanks for the links Satya. I have installed SP2 though however.  Would you suggest reinstalling SP2?

^^ yes.. SP2 would even be better :)
Thanks for the advice.  What I ended up having to do, was manually run AD replication within Sites and Services manually.   Even though I had waited for a day for it to replicate.

 I find that everytime I do something with the StorageGroupReplication, that it's best to run AD replication.

Thanks for your help.
