We are experiencing a problem with mail cluster replication. We have two mailboxes, one on server 1 and the other on server 2. When we delete mail from server 1 mailbox, the deletions are replicated to server 2 copy, however, they do no delete them from the second mailbox on server 2. The items that we deleted from server 1 (including removing them from the trash basket), appears on server 2 as "read". They are never deleted from the replica on server 2. Both copies correctly display the unread counts. the replication setting on both copies is the same, the replica ID are the same, ACL's are the same, replication settings are the same. When looking over the logs, we see where deletions are done on the second mailbox, however, the items are still appearing in the mailbox. Would you have any ideals as to why this is occurring? Any suggestions to correct?
It sounds like you have covered all of the bases. I cannot see anything that jumps out at me as being incorrectly configured. My only guesses at this would be a possible extra replica on the cluster box, or perhaps the view refresh isn't happening properly. If you go to the view with the deleted docs that are still showing, press CTRL-F9. See if they disappear. If they do, then perhaps the Indexer is not working properly on your server. I would also investigate the extra replica possibility, but I don't think that is the problem.
Good luck. I have never seen it fail in the manner you are describing when everything is setup properly, as you state it is. This may be difficult to track down. If this is an isolated problem (a few mail files) you may want to just delete the clustered replicas and start over. Mike
