This topic explains how to use the Exchange Management Shell to view the status of a cluster continuous replication (CCR) copy by using the Get-StorageGroupCopyStatus cmdlet. This topic also explains how to view the status of a CCR copy by using the Exchange Management Console in Microsoft Exchange Server 2007 Service Pack 1 (SP1).

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.

Before You Begin

To perform the following procedures, the account you use must be delegated the Exchange Server Administrator role and local Administrators group for the target server. For more information about permissions, delegating roles, and the rights that are required to administer Exchange 2007, see Permission Considerations.


To use the Exchange Management Shell to view CCR copy status

  1. Run the following command to determine the status of a storage group:

    Copy Code
    Get-StorageGroupCopyStatus -Identity:<Server\StorageGroupName>
  2. Run the following command to see the status of all storage groups on a server:

    Copy Code
    Get-StorageGroupCopyStatus -Server:<Server>
    The preceding cmdlet syntax provides you with a quick view of the copy status. To get full status output that shows all the fields, run the cmdlet with the output piped to the fl (formatted list) or ft (formatted table) option. For a detailed description of the fields in the output, see the "Viewing the Status of Storage Group Copies" section of Managing Cluster Continuous Replication.

To use the Exchange Management Console to view CCR copy status

  1. Open the Exchange Management Console.

  2. Expand Server Configuration, and then select Mailbox.

  3. In the result pane, select the clustered mailbox server containing the storage group whose status you want to view.

  4. Right-click the storage group whose status you want to view and select Properties.

  5. Select the Cluster Continuous Replication tab.
