Exchange 2007 CCR copy

Operating System : Windows 2008
Exchange version : 2007 08.01.0240.006

Problem :

Cluster continouse replication copy status has gone to failed and wont copy log files between active and passive side of the cluster.

Error message that is shown is as follows : "Log file action LogCopy failed for storage group GMEXCH5\First Storage Group. Reason: CreateFile(\\gmcl12srv2\dc6c377a-2faa-4536-a360-9973dcb8243f$\E00000094DD.log) = 5"

If you suspend storage group copy then in exchange management shell run the command : Update storage group copy it warns and deletes the MDB on the passive side. Then copy the MDB across. Copy status then goes to intialising and falls back to failed No log files are copied.

I can find alot of info about status = 2 but not status = 5.

Anybody come across this problem before?

I have run into this a few times.   For me it was due to bad disks on the San corrupting the transaction log files.   The fix was to remove all the log files on the passive node then open EMC and select the storage group and run Update Storage Group Copy...and select delete any existing log files...

Then resume the storage copy once complete...I would then run a failover to test
