Exchange 2010 - Cluster Issues

Server 2008 R2 SP1
Exchange 2010 V14.01.0438.000


A couple of days ago the backups which are set to back up the passive exchange server in our DAG failed.   They are set to run over the backup network 10.x.x.25.

Error on companymb01

The next screenshot is showing that the "Other Resources are failing and the backup IP address is no longer configured.   One of the team removed this last night to only find that after he has re inserted it via the shell it is not coming back into the options in screenshot3.

Your help getting the system back to the way it was would be great.

Also your quiet old on the Exchange front with no support for SP1 so better quickly get to SP3

Yes I have already questioned why were running so old.

OK The backup is happening over the IP address. 10.x.x.25 which I am asuming is the DAg which is configured to backup the passive server.    MB01 is .23 MB02 is .24 and this is the error I had when I came on shift last night.

Sorry I do not have the access tot he backup server at this time.  The issue is they can not ping the .25 address from the backup server and I cant ping .25 from eather .23 or .24
