Successfully created a DAG and added one server but getting an error when adding the second.  Both Servers are running Windows Server 2008 R2 Enterprise.  Any ideas on what the problem could be.  Detailed error below while trying to add bradtestsrv1 to dag1.  Adding bradtestsrv3 worked just fine.  Thank you...
