Exchange 2010 - MultiSite - DAG
Posted on 2014-01-23
We have a client that just informed me they have network maintenance scheduled for the offsite data center on 1/25, they have the 3rd copy of all their mailbox databases at that datacenter. The network will be down for 8-12 hours.
Do you think it would be best to remove the database copy (remove-mailboxdatabasecopy) from the site that's going to be unreachable? Or could I just get away with suspending replication?
They have DAC mode enabled, however there will be no databases being dismounted, remounted during the time the networks are disconnected. Additionally (and although not in use here) the FSW is in the primary site.
So the question: Should I remove the mailbox database copy and reseed afterwords, or just suspend the remote copy?
