I have an Active-Passive CCR environemnt. I enabled an extra NIC on the servers so I can use it specifially for log replication. I ran this command:

Enable-ContinuousReplicationHostName -id MyCSName -TargetMachine Node1 -HostName Node1Repl -IPv4Address 10.28.2.11

I get this error:

Enable-ContinuousReplicationHostName : Cluster validation failed : The clustered mailbox server's specified IP address
(10.28.2.11) could not be used because it is already in use. Re-run Setup, and specify a unique IP address.
At line:1 char:37
+ Enable-ContinuousReplicationHostName  <<<< -id usatl01me200 -TargetMachine usatl01mh220 -HostName MH220Repl -IPv4Addr
ess 10.28.2.11

What am I doing wrong? 10.28.2.11 is the IP address fo the NIC I want to use for log replication.

thank you

Both NIC has to be on different subnet. Check the steps

My server is Windows 2003. Your saying to change the 255.255.255.0 subnet of the new NICS to something else, say 255.255.0.0, then run this?

Enable-ContinuousReplicationHostName -id MyCSName -TargetMachine Node1 -HostName Node1Repl -IPv4Address 10.28.2.11

my public network (Onboard Port 1) is 172.x.x.x
my heartbeat network (PCI Port B) is 10.27.2.11
The new one I created (Logs - PCI Port A) is 10.28.2.11

all have subnet 255.255.255.0

I changed the subnet on Logs - PCI Port A to 255.255.254.0 but I still got the same error regarding the IP address when I run:

Enable-ContinuousReplicationHostName -id MyCSName -TargetMachine Node1 -HostName Node1Repl -IPv4Address 10.28.2.11
