E2K7 CCR “initializing” status

Q: After rebooting the passive node, the Copy Status on several storage groups remains on
Initializing for long periods of time. If dismount/mount it, the status goes back to Healthy.
A:The copy status will remain in initializing until a log has been generated. Once a log has been generated for that storage group replay will attempt to copy/inspect/reply the log. If it is able to do so the state will go to Healthy. If it can’t it will go to Failed (or Suspended if it’s really, really failed). Calling Test-Mailflow against a mailbox in the storage group 30 times usually generates a log. ( 1..30 | %{ Test-Mailflow -TargetEmailAddress <email address>} ).
