What OS version is on each server you are adding to the DAG?

Are the Exchange servers VMs?

Could it be possible that the servers might have the same MAC address?

Check your IP settings on new server. Also make sure remote registry service is running.

HI

the OS is windows 2008 R2 on the old servers and the new servers are windows 2012 VM's.  they all have different MAC address.

The Remote Registry is running as well.

If I understand what you are stating, you have one or more Exchange 2010 servers hosted on Windows 2008 R2 participating as members of a DAG as well as one or more Exchange 2010 servers hosted on Windows 2012 you are wanting to add as members of the same DAG.

Is that correct?

If that is the case, it cannot be done.  All members of the same DAG must have the same OS and version.  For example, all of the Exchange 2010 mailbox servers must be hosted on Windows 2008 R2 or all of them on Windows 2012.

From https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd638104(v=exchg.141).aspx#SoftReq

Each member of the DAG must also be running the same operating system. Exchange 2010 is supported on both the Windows Server 2008 and Windows Server 2008 R2 operating systems. All members of a DAG must run either Windows Server 2008 or Windows Server 2008 R2. They can't contain a combination of both Windows Server 2008 and Windows Server 2008 R2.
