DAG - Passive Disconnected and resynchronizing

Exchange 2013, I have 24 DBs, 4 of them have this issue

Suspend/Resume does not help

Susoend/Update gives me this error

The seeding operation failed. Error: An error occurred while performing the seed operation. Error: Failed to open a log truncation context to source server 'Exch13Server1.domain.com'. Hresult: 0xc7ff1004. Error: Error returned from an ESE function call (-1305).
 [Database: DB01, Server: Exch13Server2.domain.com]

That would suggest the problem is outside of Exchange.
Do you have anything else on the servers? AV software for example? If so, are the correct exclusions for an Exchange server in place?

The only fix I have found when it reaches that point is to remove the copy completely and do a fresh seed.

I have tried that , removed the copy, deleted the files, added a copy and got the same error.

Making Bulk Changes to Active Directory

Watch this video to see how easy it is to make mass changes to Active Directory from an external text file without using complicated scripts.

Did you do a backup?
So drop the copy complete, delete the files, then do a backup.
Once the backup is complete, put the copy back.

Circular logging can kind of achieve the same result, but of course that increases the risk of data loss in the event of a database failure at the wrong moment.

The other fix I seem to do more often than not is to simply create a new database, add it to the DAG, then move the users in to the new database, dropping the original afterwards.

I have 6 new Exchange 2013 servers, I don't have any data yet, these are blank databases

If they are blank databases, then just trash the databases and recreate.

I did delete the databases, deleted all files, folders, recreated everything and the same issue.
