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 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.

look in event viewer under
applications and services logs - microsoft - exchange - high availability - operational
filter the log on warnings, errors, and critical events
