I came across an interesting scenario few days back where customer added a CUC Secondary server back to the Cluster but it was not working as it should.
Customer had two CUC servers in the cluster in a load-balanced configuration with half of the ports on unity-02(sub) and other half on unity-01(Pub). For some hardware failure the secondary failed and they had to re-build it from Scratch. The problem they were facing was that unity was not taking any calls as the first 80 ports were on unity-02 and for some reason it was not happy.
I checked the replication status first and found this:
admin:utils dbreplication runtimestate
DB and Replication Services: ALL RUNNING
Cluster Replication State: Replication status command started at: 2012-10-18-11-44
Replication status command COMPLETED 1 tables checked out of 425

No Errors or Mismatches found.
Use ‘file view activelog cm/trace/dbl/sdi/ReplicationStatus.2012_10_23_11_44_00.out’ to see the details
DB Version: ccm7_1_2_20000_2

I can see (4) with Secondary which means not good!
I then found Secondary server complaining about some CDR records. A little search at Cisco and I found a well known defect. Bug Id: CSCta15666 for CUC 126.96.36.19900-140.

The steps taken to fix this were the following:
– utils dbreplication stop all on publisher
– utils dbreplication dropadmindb on both servers
– utils dbreplication forcedatasyncsub on subscriber
– utils dbreplication reset all
– rebooted the subscriber
After this, the dbreplication was fixed.
