Checking Exchange 2007 SCR status

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:

[PS] C:\Windows\system32>test-replicationhealth

Server          Check                      Result     Error

                                                      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.

This means you have a queue on 1075 log files to ship to the other server.

Will it sort itself over time? It depends on your bandwidth.

Rerun the check in a few hours or day if the queue length is greater then you dont have enough bandwidth to use scr, if the queue length us decreasing then all is fine

It's and MPLS line, so we should be ok!  I'll keep an eye on the queue, thanks.

Then probably the big queue was generated while the server was off being shipped to the remote location and it will start decreasing.

1075 logs = 1075 megs just so you can know what to expect in terms of time but yea on mpls is shouldnt be long before all is in order
