reducing copy queue length on Exchange 2010....

I just reseeded a DB and it's showing as 'healthy' but the copy queue length is about 740,000.

It's chipping away at it slowly, but is there any other way to get this down to 0 besides waiting it out?

I mean, if I took both DB's offline, deleted the logs from both and then remounted them would that give it a better starting point so it could get the copy queue length down?

This thing was crawling. I just made a new DB and then added it to the other box with the:

Add-mailboxdatabasecopy command and it was seeded and copyqueue and replayqueue are 0. I'm now moving all the users to that one instead and I'll decommission the old one.

It takes time to replicated the information. You can leave it, let it complete by its own. You can also use replaylagtime option also.

how will setting the replaylagtime help in this case?

that doesn't really answer my question. I'm asking if you have a large queue, how does setting the replaytime fix that? The replay time is just the amount of time that the passive copy if out of sync with the active...that won't really make the queue go down faster will it?

Check this article.

It talks copy queue length issue. I assume this might give some direction for troubleshooting.

not really. He just says he had the server powered off for 12 hours and that's probably what caused the copyqueue length to be that high. There isn't any information on getting it to go down apart from waiting....
