We are currently looking at replicating the current Exchange database to another datacenter, so we can run side by side.
Currently I have
2x HUB/CAS Servers
2x Mailbox Servers (In a DAG)
2x HUB/CAS Servers
2x Mailbox Servers (joined to the original DAG)
Site 1 - Network Config
MAPI - 192.168.0.0/24
Replication - 10.0.0.0/24
Site 2 - Network Config
MAPI - 192.168.1.0/24
Replication - 10.0.1.0/24
I have configured the replication networks with static routes so they can route to eachother between datacenters.
Since I have joined all these Mailbox servers to the DAG that exists in Site 1. I guess this is now a stretched DAG?
Under the EMC > Database Availability Groups > Networks
When I added the servers from the 2nd site, into the DAG.
I have 4 networks.
MAPI Datacenter 1
MAPI Datacenter 2
Replication Datacenter 1
Replication Datacenter 2
I have now consolidated these into
and the subnets for both the replication networks are in Replication and both MAPI networks are in the network named MAPI.
Is this correct?
I've read a bunch of exchange 2010 setup docs, but unable to find any good 'these are the 5 steps u need to do, to get a dag setup in a 2nd datacenter'.
When I try to add a copy of a database to a node in the other datacenter, I get this 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 'Exch02.domain.local'. Hresult: 0x5. Error: Callback
. [Database: Archive, Server: Exch03.domain.local]
+ CategoryInfo : InvalidOperation: (:) [Update-MailboxDatabaseCopy], SeedInProgressException
+ FullyQualifiedErrorId : EC3D0B4D,Microsoft.Exchange.Management.SystemConfigurationTasks.UpdateDatabaseCopy
Do I need another FSW, as I intend to implement DAC too.
When I try to add an additional IP to the DAG for the other datacenter network, it get an error stating that the FSW does not have the Exchange Trusted Subsystem added to the local admins on that server, even tho it is.
Sorry for all the questions!
