How to Reseed a “Failed And Suspended” Mailbox Database Copy.

 

Updating, also known as seeding, is the process in which a copy of a mailbox database is added to another Mailbox server in a database availability group (DAG). The newly added copy becomes the baseline database for the passive copy into which log files copied from the active copy are replayed.

Alternative seeding cmdlets:
