How not to install Exchange: Help please!
First a story:
I've just started here and between the previous two Network Managers the Exchange 'Upgrade' to 2010 seems to have been bodged.
First Problem is the lack of RAM in the Mailbox Servers (16GB for 1400 Users) in each. An easy fix.
However it seems the DAG group has also been set up incorrectly, leading to database migrations that cause some interesting problems.
Basically the DAG group was set up to replicate on the External Network rather than it's own internal one, So I have corrected this and the Databases seem to re-seed.
As soon as they are 'Healthy' though they drop out with the following Error in Disconnected and Resynchronizing:
The Microsoft Exchange Replication service was unable to perform an incremental reseed of database copy 'Email Database\EMAIL' due to a network error. The database copy status will be set to Disconnected. Error An error occurred while communicating with server 'EMAIL2'. Error: An operation was attempted on something that is not a socket
My Google-Fu brings up nothing...
Thanks in advance.
