Hello All -
Need a little advice on how to take care of this once and for all. I have recently taken over the Exchange Admin role for our company and have had to perform a couple restores already. Each time I try to dismount the last database I restored with Database Recovery Management, I receive the following error: "Error encountered while trying to dismounting the database (Mailbox Database - OpsMgmt) in the recovery storage group (Recovery Storage Group). Error message is: Failed to dismount (offline) database Exchange01\Recovery Storage Group\Mailbox Database - OpsMgmt. Reason: Cluster Common Failure Exception: The cluster resource group for clustered mailbox server Exchange01 was not found."
Now if I bounce the server, all is well and I can dismount, this happens with mounting the database as well, it will not allow me to mount either unless I bounce the server and then everything works for the current procedure. The problem with this, as you can guess, is I can not continually be bouncing my Exchange server and usually a restore will take almost a good full day since I have to schedule the bounce after business hours. I would like to fix the problem for good.
Has anyone had this type of issue before and what did you do to fix it? Since I am new to the Exchange world, I would greatly appreciate any advice on where to start with troubleshooting this problem, since google searches are not quite giving me what I am looking for. Thank you for your help.
