Exchange 2007 and SCR troubleshoot

Posted on 2011-05-01

We run Exchange 2007 SP3 / We have a W2K8 cluster with Exchange 2007 CMS Servers… we also have stand alone Mailbox server.

I first created an SCR between one CMS Server and the stand alone Mailbox server, and It has working OK.

I shouted the replication by Disable-StorageGroupCopy… the command tell me to destroy the files in the target SG Directory and The mailbox Files, so I did it. No problem, I destroyed the old target Storage and database…

I created new ones on the target server and I try to create SCR again, the same way, with the same nodes, same paths, but the command 'Enable-StorageGroupCopy' send:
 Another Standby continuous replication source is already configured at 'X:\SGgroupath' for 'CopyLogFolderPath'  

When I check the status of replication service:
Get-StorageGroupCopyStatus "CMSServer\SG1" –Standby Machine TargetMBXSrv |fl summary*,copy*
SummaryCopyStatus : NotConfigured
CopyQueuelenght : 0

So it seems SCR is really disable!

I have check AD Values, msExchStandbyCopyMachines and msExchHasLocalCopy  for both Storage Group, source and target and they were empty.
I don't find the subject 'X:\SGroupPath' path in the register's (node and cluster)
Same things for any 'CopyLogFolderPath' register data…  

Thanks for your HELP!
