Checking Exchange 2007 SCR status
Posted on 2011-09-07
We have 2 MS Exchange 2007 Servers; one if the main server holding all the roles and the other is setup at another site and is configured using SCR. Now, I'm not 100% as to how SCR works as it was set up by a previous employee, but the nuts and bolts of our problem are as follows:
The SCR server WAS at the same site as the main Exchange server whilst it was setup and tested, which all worked fine. The server has now moved to a different site which is part of the same AD forrest and when I run: test-replicationhealth from the Exchange Shell I get the following error:
Server Check Result Error
------ ----- ------ -----
MAIL-SERVER ReplayService Passed
MAIL-SERVER SGCopySuspended Passed
MAIL-SERVER SGCopyFailed Passed
MAIL-SERVER SGInitializing Passed
MAIL-SERVER SGCopyQueueLength *FAILED* Standby Continuous Replic
ation for storage group '
MAIL-SERVER\Replication' on server 'Mail
-SERVER' has a copy queue l
ength of 1075. This excee
ds the failure threshold
of 6 logs.
MAIL-SERVER SGReplayQueueLength Passed
MAIL-SERVER SGStandbyReplayLag Passed
Will this sort itself out in time, as the server has only been at its new site since 8am this morning?
Just to confirm, the mail server and the 'SCR' server can see each other on the network ok. Both servers are running Windows Server 2008 (X64) Standard.
