I just lost one of the Mailbox servers in a 5 node 2 site DAG. I am unable to RDP into this box, or open the console from VMware.
Can someone please provide instruction step by step to remove a failed MBX node from a DAG on Exchange 2013 CU8?
Since I will be rebuilding the servers with the same name, IP, and everything, can someone please summarize all steps to rejoin this server to the dag?
Consider all steps, such as remove all passive copies for this failed server, reset computer account, build the server, and join to the DAG
Thanks in advance
