Issues joining a new Mailbox/Hub server to the Database Availability Group

I have two servers currently in the DAG and I'm trying to add a 3rd.   I'm getting the error  below when trying to add that 3rd server. I'm seeing answers of all kinds on Forums, I've tried changing some NIC properties, I do have the same OS on all 3 servers (Win 2008 Ent.), I can't think of other things I've tried at this moment..   Hopefully someone else has run into this issue and fixed it.  Here is the error:

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

Hello,

Do your DAG members use two network adapters (first for DAG, second for data)?
Do you sure that you haven't issues with ip-addresses? Could you send a screenshot of your DAG networks (Organization... - Mailbox - DAG - Networks) and ipconfig of new server?

Are SEMEX06 and other DAG members has same Mailbox/HUB role or different roles?
Is SEMEX06 has the same Exchange version (include RU)?

Send me a result of cmdlt "Get-DatabaseAvailabilityGroup | fl".

Since we are going with an entirely new domain I'm rebuilding the exchange environment from the ground up, no longer have a need to add the additional MDB.   I have physical servers, going to build two CAS/HUB servers and then two MDB servers.
