My configuration for Exchange 2010 is as follows: Exch01 = CAS\HUB\MB Exch02 = CAS\HUB MB I have one DAG object created and both Exch01 and Exch02 are members of that DAG. I attempted to create a copy of the DB from Exch01 onto Exch02. My intent is to create a active\passive situation on both Exchange Servers, so if Exch01 is down for maintenance or whatever the passive copy that is located on Exch02 will become activated and email continues to flow for all users until the Exchange that is down is up and operational.
I attempted to do this with the first Exchange Server and received the following error: An existing database is already configured with the same location "X:\Transaction Logs" for LogFolderPath.
My paths were setup like this: EdbFilePath M:\DatabaseFiles\xxxx.edb Transaction Log File Path : X:\Transaction logs\
These paths are the Same on both servers.
How can I fix this so I have copies of each DB on the opposite Server? From my understanding the file paths have to be the same, should I have created sub-folders and would that make it work.?
