Outlook 2010 and DAG Fail-back
Posted on 2013-02-06
I have two Exchange 2010 servers A and B usng a DAG. I can disconnect the NIC cable on Exchange serverA and after waiting a few minutes it will automatically mount the DB on Exchange serverB. Then after waiting a few more minutes more my Outlook client reconnected to the failover Exchange serverB. This is perfect!
Now to fail-back to server A, I right clicked on the mailbox server database and mounted it back on primary ServerA. I then stopped all the Exchange services running on serverB, even thought the Outlook clients can open the database on ServerA, they are accessing the database on ServerA while still connected to ServerB.
How do I get my Outlook cleints to change their DNS connection to ServerB? Rebooting ServerB does not make the clients connect back to ServerA.
