Recover setup of Exchange with server part of Dag

One of our exchange servers has completely crashed so I am following the procedure of recovering the server as provided by microsoft. Trouble is that the server is a part of a DAG so I need to remove it from the DAG first. When I try to remove the databases it tells me that it cannot do that as it is circular logging. The trouble is that I cannot disable circular logging as the passive server hasn't become active as our setup was always manual and I am getting errors. I have tried everything now and I am getting a little desperate.

I am using Windows Server 2012 R2 and Exchange 2013.

Can anyone help?

Thanks

I've managed to get past the Circular Logging and also managed to use some of the switches to activate the second DAG member server databases.

Can anyone guide me to rebuilding the new server and then reactivating the dag?

Thanks

I've done that part. Got it all up and working now. My problem is now that the server isn't receiving external emails inbound for users on O365. Seems like something is broken between EOL and OnPremise.
