Exchange database content index state failed

Problem

The index status of the database is failing. It can be verified via the command Get-MailboxDatabaseCopyStatus

Resolution

If a DAG is present, we will cut the copy:

1
Suspend-MailboxDatabaseCopy – Identity dbname\exchangeserver2

 

We will stop indexing services

1
2
Stop–Service MSExchangeFastSearch
Stop–Service HostControllerService

 

We go to the directory where the database is stored.

we will delete the directory with a GUID

We will start indexing services

 

1
2
Start–Service MSExchangeFastSearch
Start–Service HostControllerService

 

We will update the catalog on the passive server (if a DAG is present)

 

1
Update-MailboxDatabaseCopy - Identity dbname\exchangeserver2 -SourceServer exchangeserver1 -CatalogOnly

 

We will check the status of the databases via the command:

Get-MailboxDatabaseCopyStatus
