I have two Exchange 2010 (v14.00.0639.021) mailbox servers that are in a DAG and are both running Windows 2008 R2 x64 Enterprise. Using PowerShell on my first mailbox server that has all 8 active databases, when I execute the "Add-MailboxdatabaseCopy" command (e.g. Add-MailboxDatabaseCopy –Identity db3 –MailboxServer LargeMbox2 –ActivationPreference 2 –SeedingPostponed) to add the 8 database copies to my second mailbox server, I get an error saying my second mailbox server “ has reached the maximum database limit of 5” when I try to add the 6th database copy. I thought the limit of 5 database copies per server was only for Windows Standard edition- and I have Windows Enterprise? Note that both of my mailbox servers only have that one mailbox role (no other Exchange roles on them). Note that I was able to add the 5 database copies and start seeding them as well (using the Update-MailboxDatabaseCopy command in PowerShell). I was trying to add the 6th database copy while the seeding was still happening.

Below is the actual error I got in Exchange PowerShell:


Server "LARGEMBOX2" has reached the maximum database limit of 5.

+ CategoryInfo : InvalidOperation: (db51:ADObjectId) [Add-MailboxDatabaseCopy], RcrExceedDbLimitException

You say you have Windows Enterprise, but what about the version of Exchange? Is that Enterprise or Standard? Exchange 2010 Standard is limited to 5 databases, Exchange 2010 Enterprise is limited to 100. So check your Exchange version.

Just to ensure and for your reference.

Window licensing and Exchange licensing is not the same.

Exchange Server 2010 Standard Server 1-5 Mailbox Databases

Exchange Server 2010 Enterprise Server 6-100 Mailbox Databases

As Neil said, you should have exchange 2010 enterprise edition which has 100 DB limit. If you have standard edition and if you want to upgrade it to enterprise than enter the enterprise key and restart MS Exchange Information store service.
