Remove a Database that is part of a DAG RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    We recently upgraded our Exchange environment to a 2010 from a 2003. We have a 3 Server DAG with 2 servers running at our main office, and one running at our DR office. We are looking to removing a database (largedb) from a DAG since we were getting lots of problems clearing the logs even after daily backups. We moved all mailboxes to a new database and would like to get rid of that damaged database. my question is what is the correct way to remove the database and be able to recover that hard drive space from all 3 servers.

    The current state of the database is as follows

    DATABASENAME            MAILBOXSERVER      IS ACTIVE     COPY STATUS         COPY QUEUE Lenght     REPLAY QUEUE LENGTH       ACTIVATION PREFERENCE

    Largedatabase                 Server1      TRUE           MOUNTED                         0                                           0                                        1                                     
    Largedatabase                 Server2      FALSE          HEALTHY                           0                                            1                                         2        
    Largedatabase                 Server3      FALSE          SUSPENDED                      234563                   1                  3

  • Remove a Mailbox Database Copy

    See the link on how to remove the copies and then the last copy.

    After that, delete the files on disk on all the servers including transaction logs.
