As part of disaster recovery, I was trying to restore a database and 45,000 associated transaction logs. I was getting the following error when trying to create a new storage group pointing to the restored data.
Failed to connect to the target server “MBX-05”. The exception message is “WMI exception occured on server ‘MBX-05’: Call cancelled “.
Exchange Management Shell command attempted:
new-StorageGroup -Server ‘MBX-05’ -Name ‘ Storage Group’ -LogFolderPath ‘F:\ExchangeGroups\StorageGroup\Logs’ -SystemFolderPath ‘F:\ExchangeGroups\StorageGroup\MailboxDatabase’
