I have two blade servers with Exchange 2010 SP1.  I have configured DAG with a couple of test databases on local storage and DAG works perfectly.  I've reconfigured both server with an ISCSI SAN mapped drives to D and E for database and transaction logs.  I create another database on each server with the database on the new ISCSI drives.  I cannot create copies now.  I receive the following errors when creating a copy.  I also get the second error in the event log.  This only happens when database are on the ISCSI SAN.  I've tried recreating the DAG and database numerous times.  Cannot get this to work.

Failed
Error:
A source-side operation failed. Error An error occurred while performing the seed operation. Error: Failed to open a log truncation context to source server 'SERVER'. Hresult: 0xfffffae7. Error: The database was either not found or was not replicated.. [Database: EXECDB04, Server: server name]

forgot to mention..  each physical exchange server has two NICs.  One for Production and the other for ISCSI.  Is there a certain configuration I may need so that DAG copies replication works properly.  As I mentioned, DAG on local storage works perfect, only have problems when databases are sitting on the SAN.

OK, i finally got this working.  I had only disabled DAG Cluster on the ISCSI NIC within Exchange.  I needed to disable at the Windows 2008 Cluster as well.

Thanks
