Exchange 2007 Maintenace Window Overlap RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have an Exchange 2007 SP1 CCR cluster with ~30 storage groups. All storage groups have one mailbox database because of the CCR requirement. There is a MS TechNet article (http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa995795.aspx) that recommends you modify the maintenance schedules so that the mailbox stores differ by at least 15 minutes. It also states that the Exchange BPa will look for this issue and flag it as well. I am not getting event ID 9871 about an overlap. ExBPa did not catch anything either. I noticed in the technet article it states "The Microsoft Exchange Server Analyzer Tool queries the Active Directory directory service to determine whether all the mailbox stores in the storage group have the same maintenance schedule."

    Does this mean that mailbox databases in other storage groups can have the overlap in maintenace window? All mine have the default schedule of 1am - 5am.
