How to Suspend Changes to a Standby Continuous Replication Target

Microsoft Exchange Server 2007 will reach end of support on April 11, 2017. To stay supported, you will need to upgrade. For more information, see Resources to help you upgrade your Office 2007 servers and clients.


Applies to: Exchange Server 2007 SP1, Exchange Server 2007 SP2, Exchange Server 2007 SP3

This topic explains how to use the Exchange Management Shell to suspend changes to a standby continuous replication (SCR) target.

Before You Begin

To perform this procedure, the account you use must be delegated the Exchange Server Administrator role and local Administrators group for the target server. For more information about permissions, delegating roles, and the rights that are required to administer Microsoft Exchange Server 2007, see Permission Considerations.


To use the Exchange Management Shell to suspend changes to an SCR target

  • Run the following command:

    Suspend-StorageGroupCopy -Identity <Server\StorageGroup> -StandbyMachine <SCRTargetComputer> -SuspendComment <Comment>

Adding a comment with the SuspendComment parameter as shown in the preceding procedure is optional, but it is recommended. This option enables you to include a brief administrative note that explains the reason for the suspension. If you add a comment that includes spaces, make sure that you enclose the comment in quotation marks. The comment is placed in the event log. You can also view the comment by running the Get-StorageGroupCopyStatus cmdlet.
