am trying to remove a server from an exchange 2010 DAG and I keep getting the following error each time I try to remove it.....

Summary: 1 item(s). 0 succeeded, 1 failed.

ABCDEF
Failed

Error:
Unable to change the quorum for database availability group DAG. The network path for witness server '\\test1.group.com\DAG.group.com'  was not found. This may be due to firewall settings.

Warning:
Unable to access file shares on witness server 'test1.group.com'. Until this problem is corrected, the database availability group may be more vulnerable to failures. You can use the Set-DatabaseAvailabilityGroup cmdlet to try the operation again. Error: The network path was not found

Warning:
The operation wasn't successful because an error was encountered. You may find more details in log file "C:\ExchangeSetupLogs\DagTasks\dagtask_2013-05-29_14-43-24.966_remove-databaseavailabiltygroupserver.log".


Exchange Management Shell command attempted:
Remove-DatabaseAvailabilityGroupServer -MailboxServer 'abcdef' -Identity 'DAG'

Elapsed Time: 00:00:03


I checked the cluster server to make sure all was correct there and also verified that in fact the firewall was disabled...
Any ideas how I can get this server removed from the DAG?
