Failing Over to the Target SCR Server

Failing Over to the Target SCR Server

Failing Over to the Target SCR Server

I need to do a test for a SCR fail over on a small storage group. One of the step is to update user's AD objects so that they point to the new mailbox db location by issuing the "get-mailbox -database "exchsource\exedb" where {$_.ObjectClass -Notmatch ' ............." command.

The problem is that it is a production environment and I cannot afford to make any mistakes. I am not quite confident to issue the command above worrying that other storage groups will be affected. I wonder if I can use tools such as ADSI Edit to change this path manually one by one. I can't locate the place where I can change this path using ADSI Edit.

Thanks in Advance

RE: Failing Over to the Target SCR Server

Are you planning to do a move of the mailbox? Or you already have a copy elsewhere and want to repoint the user to the new location?

I hope that helps.

RE: Failing Over to the Target SCR Server

I am going to do a fail over to the SCR target server so the new path will be pointing to the SCR target server.
