I have a CCR running with a total of 6 servers 2 MB, 2HT, 2 CAS.

I had a failure on active node this morning and everything failed to my passive server, i had some issues with the logs, as the werent replicating to the passive, which made sense since the active server failed because of a backup that was running on the exchange system, so the logs didnt trunk and passive and active didnt have the same logs, so no problem right? just reseed.... so i got everything working and i was about to start reseeding, then something happen, the cluster failover to his primary server making the passive a passive node again!! my problem now, is that i deleted the transaction logs and Database from the active node ( which was the passive after the failover) so i have a good database on the passive node, how do i re-seed from passive to active? i know that you re-seed onlye to passive from active... what options do i have here?

I was thinking on check the status of the database, if i have a clean shutdown, can i copy the edb to the active and try to mount the db?

It does work, just make sure to run eseutil, and verify that you DB is on clean state, also make a copy before you do anything to the DB, including eseutil.
