The problem is I don't get the even see the option for reseed or resume replication. Can i resume replication from command line option?
MaheshArchitectCommented:
Use update-mailboxdatabase copy cmdlet from shell and check if it updates the copy

Can you run Get-MailboxDatabaseCopy | fl *

also you need to check if which is your active database

U can use command line options to reseed copy but before tat we need to ensure that active database copy is mounted and healthy

So all passive copies on Mail2k16 are down?

1st try
Update-MailboxDatabaseCopy "dbname\mail2k16"

Open in new window

one by one

if you get log filer exists error, add -DeleteExistingFiles switch

have you tried reboot passive server?

If after reboot still command fails, probably you need to remove copy and reseed again

MaheshArchitectCommented:
The only option i can see is to remove passive server copies from DAG and remove passive server itself from DAG.
Force AD replication
Readd server in DAG and add passive copies again

Turns out, due to a bad windows update, there were multiple services disabled on the passive server renabled the services and restarted them and all is well.
