Exchange 2007 LCR "Local Continuous Replication" backups failing.

SUMMARY

This article addresses an issue causing Exchange database to be missing in the web interface backup menu.

ISSUE

Applies To

Exchange 2007

Symptoms / Description

When attempting to schedule or perform an immediant backup of an Exchange database, the require database is not presented for backup.

      RESOLUTION

      We must disable continuous replication or get a “Successful” copy status for this to work.

      1. Go to your exchange management console
      2. Go to “server configuration” and “Database management”
      3. Find the failed copy status state right click and choose Disable Local Continuous Replication in the menu depicted below.

      CAUSE

      If the exchange has local continuous replication enabled and is in a failed state our product is unable to talk. Our client will not talk to a failed Exchange store (this will make all exchange stores on this server fail).

      NOTES
