I have an Exchange 2010 environment with Two mailbox servers with DAG configured.  We want to shut down the 2nd Exchange Mailbox server for maintenance for a night or two.  I am trying to figure out if Auto fail-over will occur or if there is a manual process to fail over from one server to the next.  What we have is below all are Windows server 2008 R2 and Exchange 2010 SP2:

2:  Mailbox Servers
2:  CAS servers
2:  Hub Transport Servers

The two Mailbox servers are named

EXMBX1
EXMBX2


Currently All Database Copies show Active on EXMBX2.  I see the same Database Copies on EXMBX1 but they show as Inactive.
