Created DAG with 2 exchange but outgoing only from one

I have one exchange 2010 with all the three roles.
I have installed one more exchange 2010 and Created DAG. Installed a small PC with HUB and exchange management tools for witness.

Now I am not able to send external emails. if I include the witness server in the send connector mail is going out but not from any of the production servers

Hi...

Can you please confirm one thing..

How many exchange Hub server roles you have..

By default the send connector will be placed in Hub transport or Edge server and the mail flow will go through Hub server and not mailbox servers.. Kindly please confirm.. do you have the Hub server role in your production server. Please confirm

'win-2008' is the witness server which is creating issue.

If I remove 'win-2008' server from the send connector external mails will stop.

All the servers has internet.
EXCH2010 and EXCH-2 is pointed to external IPs

Default location for the queue database is
