EMC - Exchange Server replication error - ERROR:Exchange Replication Service has failed at freeze. The error is VSS_UNKNOWN_ERROR. The code is: 0x00000000.

Hi,

I don't know why I get this error message everyday ?
my current Exchange Server 2007 SP1 CCR Mbx server working fine no problem in production this is happening from the EMC SAN replication ?

any kind of help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

hm.. I don't think so this is not a hard drive issue because it is deployed as VM with Physical RDM attached on it.
driskolltCommented:
It looks like your CLARiiON needs more LUNs assigned to the Reserve LUN Pool.  It's warning that you have 2% free in your RLP - That's probably the issue.

Assign more LUNs to the RLP on the CLARiiON.
Simplify Active Directory Administration

Administration of Active Directory does not have to be hard.  Too often what should be a simple task is made more difficult than it needs to be.The solution?  Hyena from SystemTools Software.  With ease-of-use as well as powerful importing and bulk updating capabilities.

jjozAuthor Commented:
ah ok, by deleting the replica from the RM ?
driskolltCommented:
Also, it looks like you are using 20 LUNs in your Replication Manager job - Make sure you have at least 20 LUNs assign to the RLP.  You may want to assign 40 LUNs.

It's better to assign many smaller LUNs to the RLP than fewer large LUNs.  
Each source LUN will consume at least 1 LUN from the RLP to you will need at least the same number of LUNs as the number of source LUNs that you are snapping.
driskolltCommented:
Deleting the replica is up to you.  I'm not sure what you need to hang on to.  Usually snapshots aren't good for long-term retention.  You probably don't want to save more than a couple of days worth, depending on the growth rate of your RLP.

Go into Navisphere (Or Unisphere) and create more LUNs for the RLP and assign them to the Reserve LUN Pool and try your replica again.
