Exchange 2013 DAG Automatic failover
Posted on 2014-01-08
I have two Exchange 2013 Servers in the same site and one Witness server also in the same site. I have configured the DAG and replication is working. When I manage the Cluster from the msc and simulate a failure I get an error message and automatic failover does not occur. I believe I am missing something in my configuration but can't seems to pinpoint it. The error message I receive is "Cluster resource 'Cluster Name' of type 'Network Name' in clustered role 'Cluster Group' failed.
Based on the failure policies for the resource and role, the cluster service may try to bring the resource online on this node or move the group to another node of the cluster and then restart it. Check the resource and group state using Failover Cluster Manager or the Get-ClusterResource Windows PowerShell cmdlet."
Event ID 1069
Both Exchange servers appear online. Both are running Exchange 2013 on Windows 2012 Standard. The Witness server is running Windows 2008 R2 enterprise
