run this:

get-mailboxdatabasecopystatus <database name>

Open in new window


https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd351258(v=exchg.150).aspx has a list of possible errors and what can cause them. Most likely your replication broke during the update and either needs to be re-seeded or the local copy of the database needs to be brought up to date.

The first response to this question is a link with instructions on how to start the replication service. This is not useful information when the replication service is incapable of being started. The most common cause of replication service failure is Database replication failure. Get-databasecopystatus in powershell will display database replication and give information on what the nature of the failure is. In addition, the link provided will assist in tracking down the problem. Without additional information and response from the user who posted the question, however, it is not possible to determine if this information has been used to resolve the error. Thus, full points should not be awarded.
