Exchange 2016 CU15  Cluster 2 Nodes
Windows 2016
I just upgraded both nodes to CU 15

Name                : TGCS021-N1
Edition             : Enterprise
AdminDisplayVersion : Version 15.1 (Build 1913.5)             CU15

Name                : TGCS021-N2
Edition             : Enterprise
AdminDisplayVersion : Version 15.1 (Build 1913.5)            CU15

On Node 1 all the databases are active but some belong on Node 2 and I can not move them to Node 2 they fail.

Then I saw this and thought it might be the reason

[PS] C:\Windows\system32>get-ServerComponentState -Identity TGCS021-N2

I ran this several times restarted the server  and no luck

PS] C:\Windows\system32>Get-ServerComponentState "TGCS021-N2" | % { Set-ServerComponentState "TGCS021-N2" -Requester Fu
nctional -Component $_.Component -State Active }

The databases will not move unless high availability  is active.

Any ideas ?
