I'm seeking a but of clarification when setting an exchange 2010 throttling policy for an Exchange 2010 DAG that exists in a different AD Forest.
I'm following closely the Veritas Technote article.HOWTO84839 (below) and all seems ok except 1 point which I'd like to get some clarification on please.
The points I want to emphasise is SETP 5 below where, as there wasn't a VSA mailbox, I have created a linked mailbox for the VSA as detailed in the sub-steps 1 - 5. This all worked ok but the first sub step point is " Log on to the Exchange Server in the remote (Forest B\Domain B)" Which I did and this is important to note when it comes to my question (please bear with me). So effectively I have created this Linked Mailbox in ForestB for the VSA account which exists in Forest A.
So here's my quesiton:
I get to the point where I then look to create the Throttling Permission on the Exchange 2010 servers in Forest B. This is point to of the 'Permissions Configuration'. The command line it tells me to run is below with the imprtant bits in BOLD text . But it shows I should be identifying DOMAIN A\VSA_Linked. This fails as the VSA_Linked Mailbox is in DOMAINB..... Is this a typo or have I done something wrong? Should the below command work by sepcifiying DOMAIN A?
SetEVThrottlingPolicy.ps1 –User Domain A\VSA_Linked –Server Exch2010 -Version 2010
I could perhaps set the throttling script manually if I can confirm the VSA Linked mailbox is the one I should be specifying it to be applied against. I do suspect this might be a typo in the technote as I don't get any event errors when I start the archiving task - which I've seen in the past when the throttling policy has been neglected (and also the task stops running). The task runs fine without error.
The final piece of important info here is that the reason for this post is that t I see error 3177 and 3419 on the archive and retrieval tasks. Everything works for a short time after I reboot the EV server but then fails with the above error.... I thought this might be to do with the throttling policy and so needed to check this.
Yes - so it fails when I do Domain A\VSA_Linked and works when I do Domain B\VSA_Linked - so at the time I continued and everything looked to be working. However, now I'm seeing 3177 and 3419 errors so just retracing my steps as I think those errors can be caused by issues with the throttling policy..... and that was the only element of the aonfiguration where I needed to deviate from the technote.
I'm going to get a dtrace for the archive and retrieval task - so that should hopefully give me a better idea of the issues.
