First of all, LCR no more exists in Exchange 2010. I mean that you can no more have a "local" copy of a database.
Now, database copies can only exist on another Exchange 2010 mailbox server. So you absolutely need 2 mailbox servers to create a DAG and have DB copies.

Also, as far as I remember you can use GUI to make a DAG, create database copies and configure receive connectors. And the "sherry on the cake" : the Exchange 2010 SP1 GUI shows you what PowerShell command it will use to do the action you want. That is really fantastic because you can make the change you want on the GUI and just before clicking on "OK" you can see the PowerShell command that is needed to make the same thing by script.

Have a good day.

yes but can we wait from the sp2 that should of came in august ?
Setting up a DAG will require more information from you as the Exchange Design your working to, but in order to create a new receive connector, you use the following.

New-ReceiveConnector -Name Test -Usage Custom -Bindings -RemoteIPRanges

Open in new window

Inb order to create a DAG, you would use the new-databseavailabilitygroup command, listed here
this month or next month sp2 should be out. better to wait till SP2 is out, CAZ it will be very easy to use many features
