How to Fail-over mail in Exchange 2010

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

EXMBX1:  Shows Databases as Active
EXMBX2:  Shows Databases as Inactive

it will happen automatically but you can simply go to EMC -> org config -> mailbox -> database management  riright click on the DB name and move active mailbox database copy and then select to which server you wnat to move it

you could also use StartDagServerMaintenance.ps1
