[Seed Manager] The seed request for database 'S to Z Mailbox Store' encountered an error during seeding. Error: An error occurred while processing a request on server 'MPWMEX2'. Error: Couldn't open backup file handle for database 'S to Z Mailbox Store' to server 'MPWMEX2'. Hresult: 0x50d. Error: A database backup is already in progress. Please verify that no other seeding or incremental reseeding operations are started for this database, and then try the operation again by rerunning the Update-MailboxDatabaseCopy cmdlet.

Don't lose your head updating email signatures!

Do your end users still have the wrong email signature? Do email signature updates bore you or fill you with a sense of dread? You can make this a whole lot easier on yourself by trusting an Exclaimer email signature management solution. Over 50 million users do...so should you!

This is a problem we've been seeing as well. It doesn't seem to cause any issues aside from the initial seeding failure. The work around is dismounting and remounting the database, and then telling the suspended copy to resume seeding. Once you do that, it behaves normally.
