Set-MailboxDatabaseCopy

Exchange 2010
 

Applies to: Exchange Server 2010 SP3, Exchange Server 2010 SP2

Topic Last Modified: 2012-11-19

Use the Set-MailboxDatabaseCopy cmdlet to configure the properties of a database copy. Using this cmdlet, you can configure the replay lag time, truncation lag time, and activation preference value for a mailbox database copy. For information about these parameters, see Managing Mailbox Database Copies.


Set-MailboxDatabaseCopy -Identity <DatabaseCopyIdParameter> [-ActivationPreference <UInt32>] [-Confirm [<SwitchParameter>]] [-DomainController <Fqdn>] [-ReplayLagTime <EnhancedTimeSpan>] [-TruncationLagTime <EnhancedTimeSpan>] [-WhatIf [<SwitchParameter>]]

You need to be assigned permissions before you can run this cmdlet. Although all parameters for this cmdlet are listed in this topic, you may not have access to some parameters if they're not included in the permissions assigned to you. To see what permissions you need, see the"mailbox database copy" entry in the High Availability Permissions topic.

 

Parameter Required Type Description

Identity

Required

Microsoft.Exchange.Configuration.Tasks.DatabaseCopyIdParameter

The Identity parameter specifies the name of the database whose copy is being modified.

ActivationPreference

Optional

System.UInt32

The ActivationPreference parameter value is used as part of Active Manager's best copy selection process and to redistribute active mailbox databases throughout the DAG when using the RedistributeActiveDatabases.ps1 script. The value for ActivationPreference is a number equal to or greater than 1, where 1 is at the top of the preference order. The position number cannot be larger than the number of database copies of the mailbox database.

Confirm

Optional

System.Management.Automation.SwitchParameter

The Confirm switch causes the command to pause processing and requires you to acknowledge what the command will do before processing continues. You don't have to specify a value with the Confirm switch.

DomainController

Optional

Microsoft.Exchange.Data.Fqdn

The DomainController parameter specifies the fully qualified domain name (FQDN) of the domain controller that retrieves data from Active Directory.

ReplayLagTime

Optional

Microsoft.Exchange.Data.EnhancedTimeSpan

The ReplayLagTime parameter specifies the amount of time that the Microsoft Exchange Replication service should wait before replaying log files that have been copied to the passive database copy. Setting this parameter to a value greater than 0 creates a lagged database copy. The format for this parameter is (Days.Hours:Minutes:Seconds). The default setting for this value is 0 seconds. The maximum allowable setting for this value is 14 days. The minimum allowable setting is 0 seconds, although setting this value to 0 seconds effectively eliminates any delay in log replay activity.

TruncationLagTime

Optional

Microsoft.Exchange.Data.EnhancedTimeSpan

The TruncationLagTime parameter specifies the amount of time that the Microsoft Exchange Replication service should wait before truncating log files that have replayed into the passive copy of the database. The time period begins after the log has been successfully replayed into the copy of the database. The format for this parameter is (Days.Hours:Minutes:Seconds). The maximum allowable setting for this value is 14 days. The minimum allowable setting is 0 seconds, although setting this value to 0 seconds effectively eliminates any delay in log truncation activity.

WhatIf

Optional

System.Management.Automation.SwitchParameter

The WhatIf switch instructs the command to simulate the actions that it would take on the object. By using the WhatIf switch, you can view what changes would occur without having to apply any of those changes. You don't have to specify a value with the WhatIf switch.

To see the input types that this cmdlet accepts, see Cmdlet Input and Output Types. If the Input Type field for a cmdlet is blank, the cmdlet doesn’t accept input data.

To see the return types, which are also known as output types, that this cmdlet accepts, see Cmdlet Input and Output Types. If the Output Type field is blank, the cmdlet doesn’t return data.

This example configures the replay lag time with a value of 3 days for a copy of a database named DB2 that is hosted on a Mailbox server named MBX1.

Set-MailboxDatabaseCopy -Identity DB2\MBX1 -ReplayLagTime 3.0:0:0

This example configures an activation preference of 3 for the copy of a database DB1 hosted on a Mailbox server MBX2.

Set-MailboxDatabaseCopy -Identity DB1\MBX2 -ActivationPreference 3
