|Message:||The Microsoft Exchange Replication Service is unable to access the replication state for %1. Please verify that the Cluster service is running. The specific error code returned is: %2.|
This Error event indicates that the Microsoft® Exchange Replication (MSExchangeRepl) service cannot obtain the replication state for the specified storage group copy. The event occurs when the storage group copy status does not contain the correct state, as returned by the Get-StorageGroupCopyStatus cmdlet. This usually indicates that a larger problem exists. For example, the Microsoft Cluster Services (MSCS) could have stopped. If the MSCS stops, a failover to the passive node will occur.
For more information about the Get-StorageGroupCopyStatus cmdlet, see Get-StorageGroupCopyStatus.
