Event ID for Exchange 2010 db failover

Hi

We have Exchange 2010 running at one site. The DAG has two mailbox servers in London and two in Paris. We have tens of databases on each server.

Sometimes, it would be handy to know when a database has been activated on another copy.

Is there a Windows Event ID or message in the cluster.log/failover cluster manager that I should be looking for?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

The information isn't written to the Application or System log, but is stored in Applications and Services Logs\Microsoft\Exchange\HighAvailability\Operational. That log records database mount changes and various other stuff. There are a lot of event IDs that can pertain to Database copy changes. Event 205 is a database mount.
