I think the witness directory requires a path like "C:\Witness"

when I specified C:\witness, I did not get the error. However when I checked DC2 , there is no witness directory under C: drive..

Have you checked,  Adding the Exchange Trusted Subsystem group to Non-Exchange Servers, and try. Also check the permision set on the witness folder.

Do I need to create Witness folder prior to configuring DAG ?

I am using windows 2008 server as witness server, NO exchange server installed on it

Hi,

See the comments of by: denisioPosted on 2013-12-16 at 17:44:14ID: 39721214.

You can do that. And yes create the witness folder with all the permission set on that folder.
