After a recent update on server and reboot of Active and passive server. I noticed that test-replication with FL parameter is showing error like -

Server           : xxx
Check            : DatabaseRedundancy
CheckDescription : Verifies that databases have sufficient redundancy. If this check fails, it means that some
                   databases are at risk of losing data.

Error            : There were database redundancy check failures for database 'xxxx' that may be lowering its

The state of the Microsoft exchange replication on passive server shows as "disabled" should I force enable that server or just reboot the passive server again?


email flow, access is working through primary database. Following is the current status

on the passive copy status it shows "service down".
Cluster status shows healthy


it may be some service that has stopped in exchange passive DAG. Is there a way to find a list of running services on Windows 2012 r2 Exchange 2013 server.
Does not suppose to have same list of services as primary server running? my DAG server shows "Ms exchange DAG management", "Ms Exchange diagnostics", Ms Exchange Health manager" "Ms Exchange mailbox Assistants", Ms exchange throttling", "Ms exchange transport log search" all as disabled.

I did enable "Exchange replication", "AD topology"  and "Ms Exchange search" but I have not sure about other services. If enabling them would conflict with active server

THe DAG passive sever does not ping any external servers or IP like 8.8.8.8
One more thing I noticed that on both the server is that "The microsoft fail over cluster virtual adapter" is showing APIPA address, which I guess is by design of new cluster

check in services... startup type = Automatic ... these all services must start...
some services will shows delay start and some will start and stop you can ignore these ... but all services related to Microsoft exchange must start.. if not start start them manually...

the passive server does not have internet access but only intranet access though the firewall is disabled a
