Exchange 2010 Database Availability Group Networks Still Showing Up After Removal

Posted on 2013-06-24

I had created some test networks for our EX2010 DAG, when I was have problems.   When they were first created, they did not show up.   When I booted the file share witness server, they showed up.   Now I want to remove them, so I did remove them.  However, they still show up in the EMC.   When I refresh they are still there.  

Here is the display:

RunspaceId         : 2a66b3eb-4470-44a9-8519-d0b67db0dad9
Name               : test
Description        :
Subnets            : {}
Interfaces         : {}
MapiAccessEnabled  : True
ReplicationEnabled : True
IgnoreNetwork      : False
Identity           : CTCCDAG\test
IsValid            : True

RunspaceId         : 2a66b3eb-4470-44a9-8519-d0b67db0dad9
Name               : test 11
Description        :
Subnets            : {}
Interfaces         : {}
MapiAccessEnabled  : True
ReplicationEnabled : True
IgnoreNetwork      : False
Identity           : CTCCDAG\test 11
IsValid            : True

RunspaceId         : 2a66b3eb-4470-44a9-8519-d0b67db0dad9
Name               : test11
Description        :
Subnets            : {{,Unknown}}
Interfaces         : {}
MapiAccessEnabled  : False
ReplicationEnabled : True
IgnoreNetwork      : False
Identity           : CTCCDAG\test11
IsValid            : True

If I try to remove them, it says they are not there:

[PS] C:\Windows\system32>remove-databaseavailabilitygroupnetwork -identity "CTCCDAG\test11"

Are you sure you want to perform this action?
Removing database availability group network "CTCCDAG\test11".
[Y] Yes  [A] Yes to All  [N] No  [L] No to All  [?] Help (default is "Y"): y

Any ideas??   Please advise.  Thanks.

I booted the FSW and restarted all the MS Exchange Servers on the DAG servers and they still show up.   Took the DAG offline and back on, still there.    Tried creating a new one and it does not show.   So, looks like I have a problem.

Walked thru the process and eventually had to remove the servers from the DAG, remove it thru the EMC and then destroy it in the Failover Cluster Manager.  At that point,  I was able to start fresh with a new DAG.
