Cannot mount database when creating a new mailbox database

When creating a new mailbox database, on Exchange 2010, I get the error:
Couldn't mount the database that you specified. Specified database: DBname; Error code: An Active Manager operation failed. Error: The Microsoft Exchange Replication service may not be running on server servername. Specific RPC error message: Error 0x6d9 (There are no more endpoints available from the endpoint mapper) from cli_MountDatabase.

After  couple of minutes, it's possible to mount the Database manually.

I  experience this everytime a create new mailbox database.
Only sollution, is to uncheck "mount this database", and then manually mount it afterwards ;-)


  1. I guess it is normal because i am experiencing the same issue with every database i create.

  2. I discovered, that is issue is mainly when creating new Databases in DAG's.

    And, of course it's not a problem, when you know it's happening!

  3. The reason behind this issue may be the difference between values of ConfigurationDomainController and PreferredGlobalCatalog parameters. In this case, the Mailbox database operation fails because of the replication latency that occurs between the configured domain controllers and the preferred global catalog.

    In order to address above issue, define the preferred Active Directory server in Exchange Management Shell (EMS) to the following cmdlet:
    Set-ADServerSettings –PreferredServer

    I hope above Exchange Server Recovery solution will help you !
