Are there any issues with temporarily changing the IP address of an exchange DAG member?  I am converting an exchange VM to vmware and the ip address changes because of the conversion.  i change the IP address back to what it was but with that server being the active member I can't send emails internally or externally.  I can receive an email if it is sent from the outside.  If I make the other member the active member all the emails I sent for testing will then be received and everything will work fine.  This is exchange 2013 also.

Dismantle the DAG, Change the IP and recreate DAG again. That is the way you need to do it.
