This topic explains how to use the Exchange Management Console or the Exchange Management Shell to view the current status of a local continuous replication (LCR) copy.

In the Exchange Management Shell, the Get-StorageGroupCopyStatus cmdlet produces a list of information about each storage group copy. You can use a subset of the fields to assess the overall health of the storage group copy. The fields are:

Data in these fields indicate whether the configuration is considered valid for the system, and whether replication is keeping up with the changes produced by the active database. These fields, in addition to the storage group identity, are produced by default.


To use the Exchange Management Console to view LCR copy status

  1. Open the Exchange Management Console.

  2. Expand Microsoft Exchange, expand Server Configuration, and then select Mailbox.

  3. In the result pane, select the Mailbox server that contains the LCR copy whose status you want to view.

  4. In the work pane, right-click the storage group that you want to view, and then select Properties.

  5. Click the Local Continuous Replication tab to view the status.

To use the Exchange Management Shell to view LCR copy status

  • Run the following command to get a quick output of the copy status:

    Copy Code
    Get-StorageGroupCopyStatus -Identity <Server>\<StorageGroup>
    To get a complete list of all the fields in the output, run the cmdlet with an fl (formatted list) or ft (formatted table) option. For a detailed description of the fields in the output, see "Viewing Status Information" in Managing Local Continuous Replication.
