SCR server drive failed, this caused SCR to fail; Steps we used to rebuild

Filed under: EBS — WITS-SR @ 2:51 pm

As a reminder we blogged at https://workitsafe.wordpress.com/2008/06/25/scr-in-ebs-step-by-step-instructions/ and https://workitsafe.wordpress.com/2008/07/01/scr-in-ebs-step-by-step-instructions-fail-over-steps-part2/ the SCR setup instructions.

The Backup exchange server lost its data drive raid, and we had to replace the controller card, on startup we ran the Test-ReplicationHealth

The error that came back was

EXCHANGE-BU ReplayService Passed

EXCHANGE-BU SGCopySuspended Passed

EXCHANGE-BU SGCopyFailed *FAILED* Failures:

Standby Continuous Replication for storage group ‘EXCHANGE\Second Storage Group’ is in a ‘Failed’ state on server ‘EXCHANGE-BU’. The error message is: The Microsoft Exchange Replication Service encountered an error while inspecting the logs and database for EXCHANGE\Second Storage Group on startup. The specific error code returned is: Microsoft.Exchange.Cluster.Replay.FileCheckLogfileMissingException: File check failed : Logfile ‘D:\Program Files\Microsoft\Exchange Server\Mailbox\Second Storage Group\E0100000E2C.log’ was not found. at Microsoft.Exchange. Cluster.Replay.FileChecker.CheckLogfiles(Int64 minimumGeneration, Int64 maximumGeneration)at Microsoft.Exchange.

Cluster.Replay.FileChecker.RunChecks() at Microsoft.Exchange.

Cluster.Replay.ReplicaInstance.ConfigurationChecker(Object stateIgnored).

EXCHANGE-BU SGInitializing Passed

EXCHANGE-BU SGCopyQueueLength Passed

EXCHANGE-BU SGReplayQueueLength Passed

EXCHANGE-BU SGStandbyReplayLag Passed

We got the same error for the “First Storage group”

We fixed this by running the suspend command; deleted the data in the folders, and re-seeded

Suspend-StorageGroupCopy -Identity “exchange\First Storage Group” -StandbyMachine “exchange-bu”

Suspend-StorageGroupCopy -Identity “exchange\Second Storage Group” -StandbyMachine “exchange-bu”

Deleted data from “First and Second storage” group (on the backup exchange server)

Update-StorageGroupCopy -Identity “exchange\First Storage Group” -StandbyMachine “exchange-bu”

Update-StorageGroupCopy -Identity “exchange\Second Storage Group” -StandbyMachine “exchange-bu”

Resume-StorageGroupCopy -identity:”exchange\First storage Group” -standbymachine “exchange-bu”

Resume-StorageGroupCopy -identity:”exchange\Second Storage Group” -standbymachine “exchange-bu”

Run commands to Test Replication Health (on backup)

a. Get-StorageGroupCopyStatus “exchange\First Storage Group” -StandbyMachine “exchange-bu”

and Get-storagegroupcopystatus “exchange\first storage group” -standbymachine exchange-bu |fl

b. Get-StorageGroupCopyStatus “exchange\Second Storage Group” -StandbyMachine “exchange-bu”

c. Test-ReplicationHealth

Should see
