Exchange 2013. VSS Microsoft Exchange Writer. Reset without Reboot.

I’ve found that the Microsoft Exchange Writer will be in a retryable error quite often and this can be a right pain in the backside to organise an outage and get the server restarted.

Writer name: ‘Microsoft Exchange Writer’
State: [5] Waiting for completion
Last error: Retryable error

There is a relatively non-impacting way to reset this.

Restart service MSExchangeRepl. Some sources suggest restarting the Microsoft Information Store Service, at least in my environment I haven’t found this necessary

Writer name: ‘Microsoft Exchange Writer’
State: [1] Stable
Last error: No error
