I have all DNS pointing to the remaining UP server: server2.contoso.com
all internal and external URLs point to mail.contoso.com

when doing a fiddler trace (while attempting to get to ECP) I see this
X-CalculatedBETarget: server1.contoso.com  How would I (or would I need to) change that?

I do get the initial splash/login page and login but nothing ever displays.  I have already tried this fix to no avail: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/2971270

Thank you.

You should have full functionality if the event of a DAG failover event.

Is this a split site implementation, or a single site? If split site then you need to have different URLs for each server.

if all URLs are set the same on both servers(generally should be). with out hardware load balancer, layer 4 DNS round robin works great. 2 A records for mail.contoso.com pointing to each server IP. I do the same for autodiscover. make sure both servers are using same cert.
