Exchange 2007 Update Storage Group Copy Fails
Posted on 2012-08-25
I have a clustered exchange 2007 setup. I have an Information Store and a Second Storage Group. The Second storage group is the Public Folders database. That Database is stored on the C drive of each server and is showing "Healthy" in the "Copy Status."
The Information Store is showing "Failed." The database there is stored on a clustered shared drive. When I try to update the storage group copy it tells me that it failed to created the directory E:\.....\temp-seeding.
I've read other posts that say, "just run as administrator." This does not work for me.
I work in an environment where many extra security measures are put in place. We are currently going through a process of hardening the servers. So other people in the office could have changed folder permissions, GPO's, local SECpol options, and even registry entries.
I believe this is a "Permissions" issue. But how can I ensure that the proper permissions are in place?
I've tried adding the "everyone" group "full control" on the entire shared drive just to see if this would work, but it did not.
I've tried command line and GUI. Both produce the same error.
It seems as though I can fail over the cluster without a problem. I don't see any denigration in any of the services either.
So why is this not working? and so what if its not working?
