Database status Bad copy count "1" -Exchange 2013

I am using exchange 2013. There are two mailbox servers which are in DAG. Database is mounted and healthy. All seems good. To configure a DR Site, I created an exchange 2013 on azure cloud and synced one database. When I started second database sync, it got failed saying below error. When I check database status, It shows me "Bad copy count" status is 1. While database is mounted and healthy.


The seeding operation failed. Error: An error occurred while performing the seed operation. Error: An error occurred while communicating with server 'TTAEXCH2013C1'. Error: Unable to read data from the transport connection: A connection attempt failed because the connected party did not properly respond after a period of time, or established connection failed because connected host has failed to respond. [Database: MailboxDB_Users3, Server: Exchange2013-DR.TTA.MUMBAI.COM]

Try to restart the MS replication service on affected server and run the copy again

it seems you have unhealthy databasecopystatus,. Kindly check the copy status of all DBs
Arif KhanSystem AdministratorAuthor Commented:
There are only three DBs. Two are OK. I am getting this error on only single DB.
Arif KhanSystem AdministratorAuthor Commented:
I restarted the MS replication service and resumed but getting failed. Again I have started full sync, is it fine.
I think something is wrong with database . How can I fix that bad count 1?

Hi Arif,

BAD count means that your third copy of effected mailbox database is not healthy or not in properly created in Azure Exchange server. You may delete the passive copy of database on Azure Exchange server and then retry to add it.
