exchange 2010 Information Store Keeps restarting
Posted on 2013-11-18
hi, all the sudden earlier last week, out exchange 2010 which has been working fine for 2+ years since install, started having issues with the information store. server has the latest service packs and rollups.
event log doesn't really tell me much, only entries during the issue period are Info store has unexpectedly stopped, is has one this 1 time., then again when it stops a second or 2 later.
so every 2 seconds it stops and restarts. outlook clients start getting the pop up about lost connection and reconnection every second while this is happening as well, which is very irritating.
server running on esxi 5.1
Issue starts and stops by itself randomly. it can happen today and not happen again until 2 days later.
I noticed issue stops as soon as Veeam starts either replicating the VM, or backing it up.
then starts again randomly later on. issue happens when its not being backed up, so doubt veeam is the cause, but it actually stops it from, crashing when it starts working on the vm
