Mailbox Database has Multiple Copies on Same Server
Posted on 2011-03-24
I am in the process of creating a bunch of new mailbox stores in our production Exchange 2010 environment. I was scripting it through the Management Console and one of the add-mailboxdatabasecopy commands got hung up. I cancelled out of it and went to look at the mailbox database via the GUI. It only shows one copy but the database existing on the same server twice.
A report from get-mailboxdatabasecopystatus show the database existing on the same server twice one looks normal and one has three dots after the name. An attempt to remove either copy returns a result of "unable to remove as the database has multiple entries".
Any thoughts would be appreciated.
