Identify the GUID of the database that is being added using this command:

Get-MailboxDatabase DAG-DB0 | fl name,GUID

image

On the server specified in the add command, using the database GUID identified, remove the following registry key:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE

  • SOFTWARE
  • Microsoft
  • ExchangeServer
  • v14
  • Replay
  • State
  • <db-guid>
  • DumpsterInfo

image

Now compare the GUID’s and delete the ones matches from registry as shown…

Save registry and exit. you should be able to add mailbox database copy now, if Data Bases added goes into suspended mode, just make right click and update DB copy, it will take some time depending upon how big is the DB etc.
