Experts out there  need help on rebooting the servers in Exchange2010 DAG.
We have four servers two are in production site and two are in DR site.Worked on standalone server but not in DAG.
This DAG hosting active DBs in srv1 and srv2 in the active site and also copies on srv1, srv2 ,srv 3 and 4.
My concern is that if i reboot the servers then database will failover, but I have to activate the database back to its original place.
How do i do this?
I will appreciate if you put some steps.

Before rebooting the server, put that particular server in maintenance mode. This will remove the server from the failover until it is removed from maintenance mode.

Please take a read from here on updating servers, you may not be updating but will assist in preparing for a reboot.

Please beware that if you do not have a load balancer in place and using dns for routing you will have to update those records so mail still is flowing when your CAS/HUB goes down, also take a look at your how you spam filter is sending mail in and out of the environment.
