Storage Group Movement in CCR - Trouble RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi Team

    In My CCR testing envirnment , i decided to move the Storage Group Log files and System files to another location (Drive) . Before moving it was C:\program Files\Microsoft\Exchange Server\Mailbox\first Storage group

    I have been moved to SG log and system files path to G: Drive as per the link http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa996391(EXCHG.80).aspx

    i did the below commands in Active Node - Correct me if i done in wrong node.

    1. Suspend-StorageGroupCopy -Identity <CMSName\StorageGroupName>

    2.Dismount-database -Identity <CMSName\StorageGroupName\DatabaseName>

    3.Move-StorageGroupPath -Identity <CMSName\StorageGroupName> -LogFolderPath <NewPath> -SystemFolderPath <NewPath> -ConfigurationOnly

    after that manually moved the all the log file from C:\program Files\Microsoft\Exchange Server\Mailbox\first Storage group

    to G:\1st SG Logs

    then Mount-Database and Resume-StorageGroupCopy

    all of sudden my copy queue length logs become 1000 more and then i went to the Passive Node, manually moved the all the log file from C:\program Files\Microsoft\Exchange Server\Mailbox\first Storage group

    to G:\1st SG Logs

    Copy queue length is 0 and Replay Queue Length log is shown as 1000 +

    googled and found the article http://www.itbasement.net/exchange-2007-the-replayqueuelength-is-very-big/

    1. Suspend-StorageGroupCopy “<CMS Name>\SG Name>”

    2.On the Passive node, move all files and directories of the SG directory in a temp folder

    3. deleted all the log files from G:\1st SG Logs

    4.Update-StorageGroupCopy “<CMS Name>\SG Name>”

    5.Resume-StorageGroupCopy “<CMS Name>\SG Name>”

    After then it shwoing normal. Could you please tell me what went wrong, Anything i did the mistake .

    Do we need to manually move all the files from C:\program Files\Microsoft\Exchange Server\Mailbox\first Storage group after moving the Storage group from Active and Passive node? or from any one?

    I noticed some logs files are creating still automatically in active and passive in the new location of fisrt Storage Group.

  • mostly Iam not moved the logs files alone,    i moved the all the folders too inside the source storagre group folder

     

    i guess, this was went wrong

     

    could you please correct the below steps if am wrong or missing some thing below , which am going to for second storage group.

     

    In Active Node :

     

    1. Suspend-StorageGroupCopy -Identity <CMSName\StorageGroupName>

    2.Dismount-database -Identity <CMSName\StorageGroupName\DatabaseName>

    3.Move-StorageGroupPath -Identity <CMSName\StorageGroupName> -LogFolderPath <NewPath> -SystemFolderPath <NewPath> -ConfigurationOnly

    New log file location will be created in Another Drive (G:)

    Maunally move all the log files alone from C:\program Files\Microsoft\Exchange Server\Mailbox\first Storage group to G:

     

    In Passive Node

    I can able to see the newly created log file location on same G: drive

    Maunally move all the log files alone from C:\program Files\Microsoft\Exchange Server\Mailbox\first Storage group to G:

     

    and finally i have to do Mount-Database and Resume-StorageGroupCopy

    IS THAT CORRECT ? or do i missing some ting?..please correct me

All replies

  • When you moved files manually, did you moved them both on the active and the passive ?

  • If you moved only logfiles this is correct.

    You mentioned that you moved files from x to y then mount and resume-storagegroupcopy, then you said you moved files the same way on the passive node. This should be done before mount and resume-storagegroupcopy.

     

    what you did to make things work was to delete logfiles on the passive node and then did an update + resume-storagegroupcopy which makes all missing logfiles to be copied from the active to the passive.
