Good to know. We've looked at the product but haven't decided to use it.
THanks.

Installed and configured it (done by one of their partners), and it ran
great for about 4 weeks.  After that, we had 4 or 5 failovers that were
triggered when the secondary server could no longer see the primary server.
What was disconcerting was that while the secondary server was complaining
(via the dedicated link to the primary) that it could not detect the
primary, it was busy accepting replicated data from the primary.  And, of
course when the failover takes place and both servers are present on the
network, Exchange services all stopped.  The only solution was a reboot of
both boxes.  In each case, after sending countless logs to the vendor, the
best explanation we were given was that "something unusual happened".  The
only thing unusual was that my VP purchased this piece of software without
consulting me.  After experiencing more down time in 3 weeks than we had
experienced in the previous year, we called the partner in and offered him
to software back.  To his credit, he gave us a 100% refund, as we purchase
other products and services from them.  It was rather amusing a few weeks
later when we came across some promotional material for Neverfail for
Exchange and discovered, to our surprise, That we were listed as one of
their happy customers.
 
Around here, we now refer to this product as EverFail.  Your experience may
vary.

Hmm. That's cryptic. Care to elaborate?

If you use it, it will fail.
