How to Disable Standby Continuous Replication for a Storage Group

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 disable standby continuous replication (SCR) for a storage group.

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 disable SCR for a storage group

  1. Open the Exchange Management Shell.

  2. Run the following command:

    Disable-StorageGroupCopy -Identity <NameofStorageGroup> -StandbyMachine <NameofSCRTargetMachine>

    Note   The preceding command disables SCR for the specified standby computer. If the SCR source storage group also has local continuous replication (LCR) enabled and you do not include the -StandbyMachine parameter as part of this command, LCR will be disabled for the storage group.

  3. After SCR has been disabled, you must manually delete the copies of the SCR source storage group files from the former SCR target computer (the computer specified using the -StandbyMachine parameter). You will not be able to enable SCR for that storage group again until the previous copies have been deleted.
