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

Hey,

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

Defintiion of your Server is o.k

Nothing ever in the clear!

This technical paper will help you implement VMware’s VM encryption as well as implement Veeam encryption which together will achieve the nothing ever in the clear goal. If a bad guy steals VMs, backups or traffic they get nothing.

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.
