New DAG, I get this when I'm trying to add a mailbox copy:

Summary: 1 item(s). 0 succeeded, 1 failed.
Elapsed time: 00:16:17


MBDB01
Failed

Error:
A server-side seed operation has failed. Error: Content indexing operation failed with the following message: The seeding operation encountered an error while trying to contact the search service. Error: Microsoft Exchange Search Service may not be running on server ECS-EX. Specific RPC error message: Error 0x6d9 (There are no more endpoints available from the endpoint mapper) from cli_PauseIndexing [Database: MBDB01, Server: ECS-EX2.evo.local]

Exchange Management Shell command attempted:
Add-MailboxDatabaseCopy -Identity 'MBDB01' -MailboxServer 'ECS-EX2' -ActivationPreference '2'

Elapsed Time: 00:16:17

Found this link http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa995966%28EXCHG.80%29.aspx but unsure where the script is?

1. Restart the MSExchange Search service on the node which has the active database.
2. Run update-mailboxdatabasecopy -catalogonly for the passive database

I rebooted the 2nd Exchange server, and now it just shows up as "Healthy".

Is it really health? How do I check?

Exchange Server 1 - MBDB01 - Active - Mailbox Folder Size 39.2GB
Exchange Server 2 - MBDB01 - Passive - Mailbox Folder Size 15GB
