We are looking to add our Exchange 2003 cluster to our new backup system. Doing so required establishing a Recovery Storage Group on one the nodes. We didn't have free space available on any of the available nodes so we rolled out a new passive node specifically for the purpose of housing the RSG. The new node has been added to the the active Administrative Group and the RSG has been created seemingly with no problems. However, when I try to use the "Add database to recover..." function for the RSG, none of our existing storage group databases appear in the list. I've tested this function on the Active node and the expected databases are all present.
Do RSGs have to be hosted on the active node to have access to the databases.
Can anything be done to make the databases appear on the new node?
