DB Replication Issue - CUCMv8.5 - UCS Virtual Environment

Dear Experts,

I work for a Global University IP Telephony(CUCM v8.5) Team and the site has one publisher and two subscribers hosted on a Virtual Environment(Vmware-UCS) in a single Server. An unplanned power outage has caused the publisher subscriber DB replication issue. I did the following but in vain.

1. "utils dbreplication stop" on both the subsribers

2. "utils dbreplication stop" on the publisher

3. "utils dbreplication reset all" on the publisher

And it did not help resolve the problem. After that I also tried doing the "utils dbreplication repair" on the publisher with no change in the db replication.

I do see some posts where the mention about rebooting the publisher and subscriber. If that be the case please do mention the difference between rebooting and restarting via CLI.

Please help me and I sincerely thanks for all your help.

THANKS, Saravanan

DB Replication Issue - CUCMv8.5 - UCS Virtual Environment

I am also finding that any incorrect NTP settings would cause DB replication. I did see some NTP warnings/critical in the RTMT until few days ago but essentially they are gone in the last two days but the db replication problem still persists. When I checked NTP Server settings I did find the publisher IP is mentioned as the NTP server. I just wanted to add this additional information. Thank you !

What do you replication states currently show as "utils dbreplication runtimestate"?  If the UCS lost power and shutdown you might want to check for file system corruption by running the recovery disk on each server and checking for errors.  I'm not sure if the UCS has a write-cache battery to help prevent file system issues in the event of a power loss.  There's also a documentation bug to note that a rebuild should be done if you find errors when running the recovery disk CSCth53322.

DB Replication Issue - CUCMv8.5 - UCS Virtual Environment

Hello,

Could see one server 10.112.5.11 is down.That's the reason you end up seeing bad replication across the cluster.

Is it down due to maintanence ?

Thanks

Thank you all.

Hello,

From your logs, could see

cm-sub1 10.112.5.11     0.147   Yes     Off-Line        N/A     DB-diff  No      (3) Not Setup

Here we have to see many factors liks rhost,sql,connectivity,hosts,etc.May i request you to open a TAC case to troubleshoot the issue.

Thanks
