We have a Exchange 2010 Environment with DAG configured.  The Databases for mail show as Active on Email Server 2 and Inactive but Healthy on Email Server 2.  Can I manually move the active databases to Email Server 1 while Email server 2 is still up?  Will this cause any issues?

Thanks In Advance

You can surely move without any issues .... this would have no harm as they both are in Sync all the time
