I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

I created the cluster without IP address, now its giving me cluster error plus DB, Can i removed it completely and recreate.

Yes, you should be able to just remove it.  Please say you're doing this in a lab and not in production.

Not sure which articles you've seen, but following this should be fairly straight forward.

It sounds like you've never done this before and trying to do it in production should be the last thing you do at this point.

Go through these videos on setting up an Exchange 2016 lab.  Work through them and in lesson 20, it will start the DAG lessons.

Do this in a lab and be comfortable with it BEFORE you try this in production.

Thank you, some how the problem has been solved by adding Exchange Trusted Subsystem group in both exchange local admin group,

The confusion was creating with IP or IP less DAG
