What it is the correct way to remove a failed and suspended datbase from a DAG ?

landfemail used Ask the Experts™
we have a hard drive issue .can t read or open the folder where one database resides, therefore we had to failover this database .
Now we moved all mailboxes from this database, it is empty and we are ready to delete that mailbox .
What it is the best way to delete it ? will we be able to remove it even it is failed and suspended? and then can we remove the active one as it is empty now...

INMO, cmdlet remove-mailboxdatabasecopy must be enough.

If not work, can try updating database until is healthy (update-mailboxdatabasecopy) and then remove this copy.

Last step is remove edb and transactional log files from disk.
