Unable to activate Mailbox DB in Exchange Server 2013 SP1 DAG ?


Can anyone please let me know what do I need to do to activate mailbox DB in another DAG node ?

I've tried to Activate it through ECP but it still failed as below:

DAG Error

I already deleted the index GUID folder in the Mailbox DB folder (on both nodes Active/Passive) and then restart the Exchange search services. But still it is failed as above.

It takes time.. in Exchange 2010 we would use ResetSearchIndex.ps1, but in Exchange 2013 that is now depreciated. The following are the proper steps...

With that said once the CI is rebuilt on the active box, you will need to reseed to the passive..

Update-MailboxDatabaseCopy DatabaseName\ServerName -CatalogOnly

Open in new window

Once that is done you should be able to fail over, I would just confirm the health..

Get-MailboxDatabase -Identity database | Get-MailboxDatabaseCopyStatus

Open in new window
