Logs Truncation not happeneing at DR Target Server exchange 2007 SP3 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello Experts, 

    Is anybody face an issue where logs are not getting truncated at SCR Target Server. I have a CCR setup at Source side and Single Node cluster at DR . Have enabled the log shipping and seems to be everything is fine as expected. Requested backup team to perform an incremental backup so that logs can be purged at the Source as well as Target BUT here logs are getting truncated at CCR both active & passive nodes but NOT at the SCR Target Server ? Any help i have restarted the Target exchange box also so any pointers will be really helpful.

    Thanks

  • Backups will complete and will signal Exchange to begin its log truncation, but Exchange will not truncate the logs in a replicated environment (such as LCR, CCR, SCR) until each log has been successfully shipped and replayed on the passive copy of the database.

    Are you seeing any replication issues to those members? do your storage drives match? What do your backup logs say?

  • The problem is Exchange doesn't know or doesn't agree that the backup has completed successfully. This KB was pushed to fix VSS backup issues. What backup program are you using? Is there anything in the eventlogs on the machine in your DR site? Also, if you have not upgraded to SP3,RU 1, I recommend doing so.
