Exchange storage groups stuck on initializing
Posted on 2011-09-05
Have clustered Exchange servers. Security STIG's applied to 1 set. Mail is flowing but passive server unable to start cluster service. Storage groups no longer show healthy. All show Mounted and Initializing. I have tried dismounting, suspending and restoring database via the gui, restarting services, rebooting but nothing works.
Event viewer shows Event ID 1009 (Cluster service could not join an existing server cluster...). All services are up and running except for Cluster Service and Microsoft Exchange Information Store. IIS is up and running as well.
I have not hard booted this box and since today is a holiday, i'd like to get this fixed before tomorrow morning. Would appreciate any help anyone can provide.
