I have downloaded, licensed and installed on my replica server. The service in running and polling data (i can view the log).

a test email message arrives successfully.

Not sure if it sends an email every 15 minutes or just when a condition changes.

I paused replication for an hour and did not receive an email – I have never received an email beyond the test.

Am I misunderstanding the purpose of this utility?

Andrew

Do you have a trial version of your software?

Andrew

Does this software work as explained with Extended Replication as well? I have a Host server which replicates to a Secondary on-site server. The secondary server which receives the primary host’s replications has extended replication enabled to send it’s copy of the replications to a third off-site server. I want to make sure I can receive notification the same on all three servers.

Andrew

Thank you for your help. I finally got around to purchasing and setting it up on one of my servers and it has been working well so far. I do have one question… From what I have gathered the polling frequency happens every 15 minutes and if the status of the replication has changed it sends an alert. There is also the status alert configurable for daily or weekly emails that I receive at the time I specified. I would like to receive only 1 email per day at the specified customizable alert time. I found I cannot change the… Read more »

Hey Brian,

Thanks for the quick response always!

I noticed I am running into an issue with the alert email. Regardless of how many email addresses I list for the Email alert, only the last email address listed is receiving an alert email.

I listed the email addresses according to the user guide by simply adding spaces between them i.e.
first@first.com second@second.com third@third.com
In this configuration only third@third.com receives the email.
If I rearrange the order, still only the last listed email address receives the alert.

Any ideas on this one?

Andrew

Hey Brian, I understand how things can be crazy at times! I was able to figure out the comma solution by guessing and testing. Thanks for the confirmation and updating the guide! As for the previous issue I created a task in Task Scheduler to restart the HVRM service at 11pm. Polling is set to 12 hours so 11pm when the service is restarted and 11am is the next poll. This is nice because I will get a notification during the day if the replication service didn’t recover from the backups the night before but only on failures. If all… Read more »

Should I license all primary and replica servers? Or only license for primary servers is enough?

Tim Rookes

Hello,
Just purchased this. I have configured it to send me a status alert at 9am each morning, but it doesnt seem to send anything. Test email works fine and also I have noticed the logs only appear if I restart the service. I have tried setting primary and all.
Any suggestions?

Thanks

Hello, does this support Hyper V 2016 and 2019? Thanks.

Karl Smith

Hello,

I have 2 X 5 node clusters

1 in our Main server Room
1 in our Disaster Recovery Server Room

As I have set replication on all VM’s in our MCR hosts does this mean i only need to purchase 5 licenses to replicate from MCR > DR as we are only concerned about replicating one way ?

Or do I just need to purchase 2 licenses . One each for my Replica servers . 1 on MCR & 1 in DR
Regards

The service does not stay running and will not notify –Loaded on server 2019

Jan

Hallo Brian,

We are considering purchasing this software for our replica servers. Is it possible to monitor multiple replica servers with this package?
Is there also a possibility to request a trial so that we can try the software before purchasing a license?

Karl

Hello,

I have imported the license file. Company Name is showing ok but server name ,license key or valid signature is set to No.

Please help

Karl

Hi Brian,
We have two licenses in use. I noticed that we are not getting daily notifications any more, and the service is stopping. When I manually start the service and send test email, it arrives, but with all variables and not showing the actual data.
We upgraded from 2016 to 2019. I am not sure whether the upgrade and the issue happened at the same time.
Anything to check?
Thanks,
Pavla

Pavla

Brian,
Thanks for the response. We are on the current version, and you are right, I now remember that the test email always did that.

How do you want me to send you the logs?

I was snooping around in the logs and see this error repeating since the last successful notification on 12/28:
System.Exception: Exception of type ‘System.Exception’ was thrown.
at IQSHVReplMonService1.GetReplicationInfo.Update(String replMode) in C:\Projects\IQS_HVReplMonService\IQS_HVReplMonService\Service\ReplicationInfo\GetReplicationInfo.cs:line 104

Tim Bache

Tim Bache

Bingo all sorted, thanks for the help and great little product

Andrew Hancock

I have retired an old replica server. Can I transfer the license to its replacement or does a new license need to be purchased?

Andrew Hancock

Thank you for the quick response!

Andrew Hancock

This program has ran bullet proof for me for over a year now. I love it. Do you have any similar software or service that reports on the built in Windows Server Backup? I’d be a customer. Thank you!

Roberto Conti

I’ve just installed and licensed on my 2 servers. My problem is with sending emails: every test ends up in a timeout error, like this:

30/12/2020 18:37:40 General status alert email…
30/12/2020 18:39:20 Error Sending Email, System.Net.Mail.SmtpException: The operation has timed out.
  at System.Net.Mail.SmtpClient.Send(MailMessage message)
  at IQSHVReplMonService1.Mail.SendMail(String body, String subject, Boolean html) in C:\Projects\IQS_HVReplMonService\IQS_HVReplMonService\Service\Helpers\Mail.cs:line 68
30/12/2020 18:39:20 Next System Check: 30/12/2020 18:54:20

I’ve tried several configurations and email addresses, and I succeeded only once, with my private Gmail address, configuring Gmail account to allow less secure apps.
Can you help please?
Thanks, BR

Roberto Conti

I’m working on it, but it seems that the problem is the access to smtps.aruba.it:465.
Trying to ping it I resolve the name, I’m sure about credentials, but I still obtain only a timeout error. I’m creating a new account on google, with gmail it should work. I’ll let you know asap. Thanks a lot! Roberto

Roberto Conti

Sending mail works fine with Gmail. Issue resolved. Just another minor issue: sending test mail, I receive 2 emails.
The correct one is:
SERVERONE: Normal 
and the status of the VMs

The other one is:
SERVERONE: ^OverAllHlthState^ 
and the body is:
^VMName^ ^ReplState^ ^ReplHlth^ ^PendReplSzMB^ ^AvgReplSzMB^ ^ReplMode^ ^VMId^ 

Thanks again for the support.
BR, Roberto

Each day at 3am, we receive the following warning email. This is happening because some SQL maintenance tasks are occuring on the VM and for some reason this is being picked up us a major 67GB (on average) change to some data on that VM. The replication is happening over WAN: Last successful replication for virtual machine ‘ABC’ has been delayed. Delay has exceeded the defined warning limit. Replication might be encountering problems. PendReplSzMB = 67,024.49 LastReplTime = 03:01:31 ReplErrors = 0 We know that the actual size of the pending replication is much smaller (perhaps the SQL tasks are… Read more »

Thanks Brian. I’ll give it a go soon and let you know how we get on.

Josh

Seems to be working with the scheduled stop/start of the service. Thanks Brian!

Good Morning Brian, when sending a test email it shows up as this:

^VMName^ ^ReplState^ ^ReplHlth^ ^PendReplSzMB^ ^AvgReplSzMB^ ^ReplMode^ ^VMId^ 

Is this normal for a test email, and would it append/read and display the Hyper-V virtual machine’s when the daily trigger email?
