Hi I am receiving the error below adding a second member of the DAG. The error said that the mailbox server is a member of clusters "Clusxxx". That cluster does not exist it is old information . I initally created it and assigned the virtual IP but I never were able to add the members the firts time due a error with the IP so I decided deleted all. Created a new DAG name , new IP and added the members but now I trying to add the second member I am receiving the message below but that cluster does not exist . Is there any way that I can delete the old information?

THanks,

XX-MBX-01
Failed

Error:
Mailbox server XX-MBX-01 is a member of cluster 'ClusXXX'. The server must be evicted from the cluster prior to adding it to database availability group 'DAGMBX'.

The error means what it says, so you will have to cluster manager to connect to the cluster, evict the node and then remove the old DAG cluster.

I just notice that old information is on the CLuster manager program on that server. The other member has the correct cluste information at the cluster manager but no this. Can I evit the node and remove it from the cluster manager console?

That is what you need to do. The old DAG configuration needs to be cleaned up.
Hopefully you are using a different name for the DAG, otherwise you will have a huge mess on your hands.
