I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Your not being very descriptive.

Is the drive letter the same on the new dag member as on seeding member?
Will SzymkowskiSenior Solution ArchitectCommented:
As Leroy has stated you need to provide us more info. Some of the things that can create issues with adding DAG members are the following...
- networking is not set properly
- Drive Letters or logical paths are not the same
- Exchange Services are not stated

There are several reasons why something like this could fail. it would be helpful if you could provide an error message that you are receiving as a start.

We cannot give you an exact reason why your DAG might not allow you to add members. There are several different variables and unless we know what the error message is and exactly how you have configured your DAG we cannot tell you what might be causing the DAG add member to fail.

is there any permissions required at server level?
Will SzymkowskiSenior Solution ArchitectCommented:
There are no specific permissions that you need to identify manually. Trusted SubSystem is the only one that i can think of.
