I have two AD sites, my Datacenter and my Office.  I have an Exchange server in each location with every role and I have a DAG.  I keep getting this error when I try to create a database copy.  

Summary: 1 item(s). 0 succeeded, 1 failed.
Elapsed time: 02:37:01


abcDatabase1

have you ever got it to sink correctly, When I first set it up, I tried everything to get it to work my existing  mailbox database and kept getting those errors. So what I did was create a new database, setup the dag for it between the two servers, which worked perfectly. Then I moved all of the user mailboxes to the new database. I havent had any issues since.

I haven't got these databases to sync up.  I have 5 databases and all of them are already created and I have standard version so I'm at my limit.  I cannot create a new database to move the mailboxes to.  I should be able to get these two databases to join the dag and need help doing that or figuring out why it fails.

I'm rebooting the server and I can try to reseed through the Exchange Console.  I tried to "resume" through the console, but it reported "failed" and gave me this error:

The database copy was automatically suspended due to failure item processing. At '10/24/2011 12:16:36 AM' the copy of 'abcDatabase1' on this server experienced an error that requires it be reseeded. For more detail about this failure, consult the Event log on the server for other storage and "ExchangeStoreDb" events. The passive database copy has been suspended.

what would be the easiest way to move all of the users to a new database?  For example, from command line with 20 or so at a time.

I would do it from the GUI, alot easier, you can highlight the ones you want right click and schedule move

This does not answer the problem for 1.5TB databases with 50000 users
