Getting “Crawling” or “Failed” for Content Index State for databases in DAG over WAN links?

In PowerShell run this “Get-MailboxDatabaseCopyStatus | fl name, contentindexstate”

If a DB has failed or Crawling next to ContentIndexState do this:

 

1. Restart the MSExchange Search service

2. Update-MailboxDatabaseCopy -Identity DB4\MB3 -CatalogOnly

3. Run “Get-MailboxDatabaseCopyStatus | fl name, contentindexstate” again to confirm
