Hi

I have a situation where I have a DAG setup in Exchange 2010 Environment.

One DAG member (exchange 01) and Witness Server both have gone offline and we can bring them up for maybe in 4-5 days as they is a power outage on the location.

This leaves us with second DAG member (exchange 02) server which Datastores active on it but not mounted.

When I try to mount these Datastores they on Exchange 02 , I get error message saying Exchange 01 is not responding check replication services on it, of course because its offline.

Is there a way that I can bring up these Datastores on Exchange 02 saying that when Exchange 01 and Witness Server will come back up I will be able to bring the Failover Cluster back online and as what it was setup originally.

Thanks

Once DAG1 and FSW is Offline you have to get a new FSW in the DAG2 location and then try to get the Majority and wait for sometime and get the Databases Online.

Is the Replication service running on DAG2 ?

Ok the cluster resources will still be owned by the now offline server, any cluster activity such as bringing a node on line requires the clutter group to be active. What you will have to do in this scenario is to evict the node and recover the sever,
