At the same time, you find the following events in the Application log:
Event Type: Warning Event Source: MSExchangeRepl Event ID: 2129 Event Category: Service Description: The number of standby continuous replication targets on this computer has reached the allowable limit of 9. Because the limit has been reached, configuration W_SCR_Test will not be activated.
