DAG stopped working after creating CAS array.

Hi I have Exch 2010 Environment of 4 servers. 2 are MBX/HT and 2 are CAS. My DAG was working fine before i created CAS array. One member of my CAS array was File Witness server for the DAG. I dont see File witness share folder either. My CAS array is made up of Win 2008 NLB clustering.

My question is, should i add 2 of my CAS array server as main and alternate file witness share servers on my DAG or shall i remove and reconfigure a new DAG?

It needs to be a specific server, using the NLB name will not work.
A single FSW is all that is required, I am not sure you can add a second, I have never tried it.

You need to remove and re-create the DAG, however, I would suggest that the NLB name is not the best name to use for the File Share Witness.

Thx, initially i tried to use nlb name and it didnt work. then i used name of a member of nlb and its working fine now. should i use second member of my nlb as an alternate file witness share. Would it be ok? im little nervous about this as im not aware of the repurcussions.
