Exchange 2010 DAG

i am trying to restart mailbox server (a) which is part of DAG

i see there are lot of mailbox databases around 10 or 15 which are showing on mounted status

all i need to know i should suspend only those dtabases which are mounted on this server(a)

but why i am seeing other databases as mounted under organization configuration-mailbox but are actually mounted on some other mailbox server.

lets say for ex.

the mailbox server (a) which i am ging to reboot is in europe

but under mail box i see

NZ -TIER1 database shows mounted but is actually mounted on newzealand server

whereas there are databases which has the name of this mailbox server (a) and is mnounted on this server

You are seeing it under that server because 1) you are in DAG 2) That DB is having a passive copy (I assume) on the server you want to reboot.

Put your node into maintenance mode and that way you do not have to worry ;) Follow the Article article which beautifully explains Exchange 2010 Maintenance mode

so passive copy should be healthy and not mounted on the server?

how other db's are mounted
