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

you must define  where your Directory will be create.
excample: C:\Exchdag  oder C:\Witness

Defintiion of your Server is o.k

Are your AD admin tools letting you down?

Managing Active Directory can get complicated.  Often, the native tools for managing AD are just not up to the task.  The largest Active Directory installations in the world have relied on one tool to manage their day-to-day administration tasks: Hyena. Start your trial today.

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.
