You should be performing a migration?

Otherwise the AD and Exchange Organisation will be different causing all sorts of problems.

There are many ways ....
What is the purpose ...... as if both are in the same location you can also work through SCR or manually copying the database if they both are in the same Exchange Organization\Forest ..

The new server is a bare-metal backup install of the original.  The new is finally tested and ready to take over, only the exchange db is a little out of sync.

If you have SCR then its going to be ...... how is the Databases moved to the DR server ??
Only one thing is here ...... As the Exchange Organization and AG are the same, just on the properties of the DR Mailbox an Public Databases you will have to check the Box "This database can be overwritten by a restore".

you can copy the database and log files to the new Exchange server and mount it but this only will succeed if the Exchange organization name is the same for both exchange environments.

Everything is exactly identical, only difference is the original server is still receiving the email.  I will try the copy of db and log files.

Dont need to copy any .logs or any other file ....... your Production Store would have to be made Offline (Dismount) thne just copy the .edb file and mount on the new server .............. We just would need the .edb file
