I am having issues with the Exchange verification process when the remote verification service runs on a VM. The ESX 3 server has the NetApp FCP host kit but I keep on getting the FCP partner misconfigured error. I can not yet upgrade to vSphere so I have a cron job which sets the MPIO path every hour. However this is not enough for the verification job as it has 8 luns in two volumes.
The partner misconfigured error could be a couple of different thing. It could be something as simple as a configuration issue or it could also mean that the primary path between the host and the storage has failed. Is this something that happens only during verification or at other times as well such as during the SnapMirror process. Is this just something that is failing during the verification process?
