VMotion of Exchange mailbox server causing downtime
Posted on 2012-08-28
When doing VMotion for Exchange Server 2007 SP1 CCR mailbox in the DR instance, it stopped the production node and causing downtime to the production mailbox server eventhough the VMotion is only for the DR instance ?
Because during the VMotion the Virtual IP and clustername is not responding to ping, thus causing massive total outage in the production mailbox.
The solution was to turn off the DR instance after the VMotion to make it fail over to the production node again.
