Hello,

Is "Microsoft Exchange Replication" service running on "DR server nane"?
Is it your first database in DAG?

Could you write an answer from follow cmdltes?

Network connectivity should be stable and enough bandwidth is required.
Check all the services should be running.
How much is the database size.

The other option is to create a new database and add a copy.
The move the mailbox one by one to the new database, this will ship the logs in parts.

OR manual seeding can be done.

This has been fixed. It was not network issue, it was replication issue of DC in DR site and Production site.
