i tried upgrading to SME 7.1 on our Exchange 2013 SP1 CU6, but when trying to configure the Exchange Server in the SME management console using the configuration wizard, it gave an error before the LUN mapping page, saying "Failed to get Exchange information for server" and "The communication object, System.ServiceModel.Channels.ServiceChannel, cannot be used for communication because it is in the Faulted state.".
I upgraded Snapdrive to 7.1, verfied all credentials according to the manuals, re-installed and rebooted multiple times (registry and filesystem cleaned, even tried to rename the existing SnapInfo directory, ...), stopped all other services on the server but without any change...
Every time when trying to run the configuration wizard, the debug log shows no errors, lists all Exchange information and ends with the following lines:
[11/18 12:51:58 155] Exit CSmeCDOExm::GetExchangeStructureInternal 0x0 [11/18 12:51:58 155] Exit CNtapSnapMgr::GetExchangeStructure: 0x0 [11/18 12:51:58 233] Enter CSmeServerBase::~CSmeServerBase ... [11/18 12:51:58 248] m_ptrSnapShot released [11/18 12:51:58 248] m_pISnapShot4 released [11/18 12:51:58 248] m_pISnapShot5 released [11/18 12:51:58 248] m_pISnapShot6 released [11/18 12:51:58 248] m_pISnapShot7 released [11/18 12:51:58 248] m_pISnapShot8 released [11/18 12:51:58 248] m_pISnapShot9 released
I ended up uninstalling SME 7.1 and re-installed SME 7.0 which is working.
Exchange Server: ESXi 5.5 VM, Windows Server 2012 R2 (with current patches), Exchange 2013 SP1 CU6 - no DAG, single server installation (in co-existence with Exchange 2010), 4 iSCSI LUNs created with Snapdrive (1x Log, 3x Store), System drive and Exchange installation drive on vmdk Disks (via ESXi -> NFS store on the same NetApp)
NetApp: FAS 2240-2 with Data ONTAP 8.1.4P1 7-mode (with complete license bundle)
Anyone else got this problem or even better - a solution?
