How many exchange servers do you have ? because there are several configurations / high availability options that exchange server can have.

If you have 2 mailbox servers, you might be in a CCR - To confirm please can you do the following.

To use the Exchange Management Console to view CCR copy status
Open the Exchange Management Console.
Expand Server Configuration, and then select Mailbox.
In the result pane, select the clustered mailbox server containing the storage group whose status you want to view.
Right-click the storage group whose status you want to view and select Properties
Select the Cluster Continuous Replication tab.

MKris9,

1) Yes, I have 2 mailbox servers ....
2) Yes, They are clustered ...
3) So CCR means Continuous Cluster Replication ?
4) So the meaning of "Copy Status" here is "CCR Copy Status"? (Accordingly, if i only have ONE mailbox server, i will not have this term "Copy status" right?
5) If the "copy status is healthy" that means the Replication of the clusters running well, right?
6) Confirm please
7) Thanks

yes, if you are able to see the copy status under Cluster Continuous Replication tab as i mentioned above, then its Cluster continuous replication. and if copy status is healthy. its fine. but its very difficult to say what if the copy status is 'not healthy. Basically, its always best to read up on CCR, how its done, and also to do a test failover to make sure that everything is working as it should.

The first 5 or 6 links are the best to go about it.
