The Microsoft Exchange Mailbox Replication service terminated unexpectedly every day or so.

For the past two months, I've been seeing the following Event triggered on our Exchange server.

  • Windows Server 2012 R2
  • Microsoft Exchange Server 2016 Standard (Version 15.1 ‎(Build 2242.4)‎).

There is no impact, because the Service starts back up. However the client keeps receiving notifications from the alerting system, so it is a concern as to what is triggering this. I have been unable to determine the source.

Any suggestions on how to approach this matter would be welcome.

Here's the Event:
ServerName.root.Domain |E|G|S|SW|MS-Exchange|P3|20201228|
Alert Detail: System log generated Error Event 7031 on ServerName.root.Domain
