BCM for W2k8/E2k7, SP1 error during Exchange Instance Recreation

[ Edited ]

Client Production is:

2 node W2k8 cluster with E2k7

DR is: standby cluster w/ W2k8

We only have binaries installed. Followed https://now.netapp.com/Knowledgebase/solutionarea.asp?id=kb48096

to install BCM.

All stages of BCM failover successful except for "Exchange Instance Recreation"... Seeing the following error in BCM Report:

I am able to bring the luns online, but it is not creating the System Attendant, Information Store, and Disk Resources automatically. Manually creating them doesn’t work either.


If I failback using BCM, everything works except for the mounting of the datastore. I must restore from a SME backup in order to be able to mount the datastore.

John ..

I am assuming it is Exchange 2k7 sp2..correct me if am wrong .

"Cluster Common Failure Exception: The group or resource is is not in the correct state to perform the requested operation. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x8007139F)"

Even if you do /recovercms manually , it hits the same issue right?
what is the corresponding event log ..?


MSFT seems to indicate in the following link that it is due to AD replication lag

Another link that is suggesting a workaround (Not sure if solves the issue though)
