Exchange 2007 Transport Dumpster – How does it work

Exchange 2007 Transport Dumpster – how does it work

There are some important points

  • Dumpster works only with CCR implementation
  • The maximum size of the Transport dumpster queue per storage group is for all the storage groups
  • To disable the dumpster we should define to 0
  • The cmdlet used to define is set-transportconfig
  • An eventid 2099 will appear when a failover event occurs
  • The recommended size of MaxDumpsterSizePerStorageGroup should be 3 times more than the maximum message size
  • When the limit is reached the first in is the first out
  • The transport dumpster depends on the RPC between two cluster nodes. Once the failed node come back online it will keep trying to sync with the other node and deliver the queue. The maximum time is several times a day for the 7 days.

[PS] C:>get-transportconfig

Exchange Backup Error – 0xe000fedd, 0xe000037b, 0xe00084af or 0xe000846b errors

Exchange Backup Error – 0xe000fedd, 0xe000037b, 0xe00084af or 0xe000846b errors 

When attempting to backup Exchange 2007 resources configured with either Local Continuous Replication (LCR) or Cluster Continuous Replication (CCR), the backup job will intermittently fail with 0xe000fedd, 0xe000037b, 0xe00084af or 0xe000846b errors

Problem
When attempting to backup Exchange 2007 resources configured with either Local Continuous Replication (LCR) or Cluster Continuous Replication (CCR), the backup job will intermittently fail with 0xe000fedd, 0xe000037b, 0xe00084af or 0xe000846b errors

Error
0xe000fedd – A failure occurred accessing the object list

With Symantec Backup Exec
Same error also occurs if you perform backup using Symantec Backup Exec 2010- if you perform a GRT backup on Exchange 2007 Ent SP2. 

You shouldn’t configure the GRT backup on Tape Device
You shouldn’t configure the GRT backup using Passive Copy of Cluster

You should configure GRT on a Disk using Active Copy of Cluster
You can always do the Non-GRT Backup of the server using Passive Copy of the Cluster on a Tape Device

Must Read
The job specified that the Microsoft Exchange backup should be made from the passive copy of the database, but the passive copy is currently unavailable.
