DAG Failures

If a Mailbox copy becomes unhealthy or fails it will be necessary to suspend the mounted database and failover to the database copy.


The failed copy can be un-mounted, renamed and moved to another location for safe keeping.


You can then create a new database copy from the failover copy back to the original location from the DAG tab in EMC.

Merging mailboxes
