Database Content index state crawling in Exchange 2010 DAG


We have received error that one of the database copies had been stuck in a status of “Crawling” for over a day.

Untitled

To rectify this problem, we did the following:

1. Log onto the affected server and open up services.

2. Restart the “Microsoft Exchange Search Indexer” service:

3. Run the following PowerShell command in EMC:

Update-MailboxDatabaseCopy –Identity DATABASE\SERVER –CatalogOnly

This will update the search index of the database and then you can run the following command to ensure that the database index is now healthy:

Get-MailboxDatabaseCopyStatus -Identity DATABASE\SERVER
