Hi,

I have 3 MBX servers, two in HO and one in Branch Office. One database indbd01 is mounted in branch office server and its copy is there in one of HO server. We disabled the automatic mounting of the database inddb01 in HO server incase of any internet issue between two offices as per below link
http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd298046(v=exchg.150).aspx

today morning the internet connection had some issue and I saw a huge copy queue length. Attached the screenshot.  Why like it shows?

thanks

you can ignore the copy queue length it is not true, it is just because it is unable to communicate with the DR site server.

once the connection is back the queue length will be correct again

yes you should be able to mount the datababse in the HO if it was dismounted gracefully

no.. it is not dismounted. The database is initially mounted in branch office server and copy is in HO server. and we configured the HO server for this database  as manual mount. http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd298046(v=exchg.150).aspx

So if the brach office server is down also, the database in HO won't mount. What my question is, can we mount the database in HO server even if this fake queue shows..

we configured "This copy can only be activated by manual intervention." in HO server for the copy. Because we don't want to mount the database at HO if there is a small network outage.

ok wait I guess I am confused 2 things. I re-read your original post and noticed that it is mounted in the branch office and not in the HO

which server is the one in the HO ? the one showing the huge queue length or the one showing service down ?

in that case you could mount it but not "Cleanly" meaning that you will need to force it to mount
