Exchange 2013

I am getting error "the specified database isn't configured for replication" when adding second Exchange server as database copy. I have dismounted and removed the default database created on Second server and now trying to replicate database after completing DAG and witness configuration

Have you made sure that your Drive letters and paths are identical for both DAG members where you are enabling copies?

Yes... I do have f drive in the second server. I thought it was suppose to pick the same drive automatically

After you add an Exchange server to a DAG you need to enable copies on the DAG member. This does not happen automatically.

I did not enable database copy that is when I got this error. I can see it did automatically created folder on F drive on second server. I probably have to log ticket to MS to find why it failed. To me the error sounds specific to health of DB or the empty DB I dismounted on second sever and removed or hidden component of existing DB like health monitoring DB based on event logs on both DB

I just have to run update to resync but  I got same error on test db too until I did update again. Most be an issue related to cluster network object or cluster network. I am kind of suspicious about seeding if it does not pickup automatically and I have run update every time manually. Kind of wasted ms ticket just to press update or may be I will have to setup second network card on both server and ask them to fix on same ticket
