If you are planning to deploy DAG for Exchange 2013, you may look into these article:

Also only Exchange 2013 SP1 is supported on Windows Server 2012 R2

Thanks for your response.

I`m looking for more detailed instructions - step by step.

I want to install 2 Exchange (CAS role with load balancing) and 2 Exchange (mailbox role).

Should I build 2 failover cluster one for CAS and second for mailbox ?

You need not to configure failover cluster for CAS server. Either you go for Hardware Load Balancer or Windows NLB.

When you configure DAG for mailbox servers, failover clustering is automatically configured  for you. Above links explains the same.

So I should install 2 CAS on separate servers and 2 mailbox on separate servers, and configure DAG ? I don`t need to manually install failover clustering ?

Yes you not need to manually install failover clustering, while creating DAG it will create automatically create cluster, then need to add exchange server into that DAG group. after adding mailbox server into DAG, It will automatic bean a member of cluster

Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why
