ActiveDatabaseCopyStatus change EventID RRS feed

  • Question

  • I need to know what the EventID identifies a change in the ActiveDatabaseCopyStatus for Exch2013.

    ClusterFailover Manager only shows events with quorum and the fileshare witness, but says nothing about whether or not the database actually moved.

    Hope this was clear

    Thanks

  • Hi,

     

    A bit supplement about Andy's suggestion. Exchange Server logs events to crimson channels in the Applications and Services logs area. You can view these channels by performing these steps:

    1. Open Event Viewer.
    2. In the console tree, navigate to Applications and Services Logs > Microsoft > Exchange.
    3. Under Exchange, select a crimson channel, such as HighAvailability or MailboxDatabaseFailureItems to see DAG and database copy-related events, 

     

    Event ID 306 is what is logged on the Primary Active Manager (PAM) server when a database is moved to another node, you can see the log description that it doesn’t contain anything more than the database name, the source and target servers, and any move comment.

  • Hi

    There are events which say that the database is now active on the server, you will see a number of events when you do a failover.

    If you have monitoring like SCOM, SolarWinds, Labtech etc, they all report failover of databases.
