‘Enable Local Continous Replication’ not shown for Storage Group

Hi,

  Sometimes  you want to enable Local Continuous Replication (LCR)  for a Storage Group, but Exchange doesn’t show the option to Enable it. Mainly there are two reasons for it.

1. The Storage Group contains more than 1 Exchange Database (Mailbox or Public Folder)

2. The Storage Group contains only one Database .

Enable-LCR-Not-Shown

Enable-LCR-Not-Shown

First scenario is acceptable because Exchange doesn’t allow to Enbale LCR for a Storage Group that contains more than one Exchange Database. There is a problem with second scenario where a Storage Group contains only one Exchange Database but Exchange doesn’t show the option to Enable LCR. After a long research I found that this happens when the Folder representing Storage Group contains more than one .edb file. When we delete an Exchange Database, corresponding .edb file is not deleted automatically. So it causes the ‘Enable LCR’ option not to be shown. So I deleted the garbage .edb file(s) from the Storage Group folder on the disk, and then refreshed the console, which then showed me ‘Enable LCR’ option.

  3. I was suggested this blog through my cousin.
    I’m no longer certain whether or not this post is written via him as nobody else know such specific about my problem.
    You are amazing! Thank you!
