Issue



An attempt to restore Exchange 2007 to a Recovery Storage Group fails with error "A failure occurred querying the Writer status"


Error



"0xe000fed1 - A failure occurred querying the Writer status"


Environment



Microsoft Exchange 2007


Cause



Selecting the Mailbox database and logs individually would cause the job to fail with error  "0xe000fed1 - A failure occurred querying the Writer status"  


Solution



When running a restore of Exchange 2007 to a Recovery Storage Group the restore may fail with this error in the job log:

Final error: "0xe000fed1 - A failure occurred querying the Writer status"

This can be caused by the way the restore set was selected in the restore selection list. In figure 1 there is a forward slash next to the storage group, this is caused by selecting the mailbox database and the logs individually.
