Alright here we go.
We have an Exchange 2010 environment. 4 servers: CAS, Two local Mailbox Servers, and a Remote Mailbox Server.
The 3 mailbox servers are in a DAG. One of the two local mailbox servers had a mailbox copy but thats in a failed and suspended status. Long story short each server has its own database that it's using for storage. The remote site Failover Clustering Node keeps failing about once a week. I think its from latency and other miscellaneous network problems.
My options are to juggle the servers in order to get that remote server back online (restarting services all over) and finally having that remote node come up (no rhyme or reason why it starts besides restarted Exchange and cluster service) but that usually restores it.
My second option is to "Manage Database Availibility Group" and select to remove this remote server from the DAG. (Also can i do this while the node is down??
What would you recommend I do in this situation? There are no database copies to speak of so that shouldn't be an issue.
