In this video, learn how to create a database availability group (DAG) to support your high availability Exchange infrastructure. DAGs are used for membership purposes so you can know who will be allowed to carry synchronized versions of the databases.
- [Lecturer] We're going to create … a database availability group, but before we do that … we need to make a couple of changes to our Witness Server. … Our Witness Server's going to be Fileserver1 … which is a member of the domain … but is not an exchange server. … We need to add a directory or folder on to the C drive … or any other location on the server. … And we're going to call this Witness. … now we need to give Witness some rights … to our exchange servers, … so that way it can create the database availability group … and become the Witness Server to break any ties … in case our cluster has a problem. … We'll click on Security, Edit, Add, … and type in exchange … when we click Check Names a list of groups come up, … and we want to choose the exchange servers … by default all exchange servers with the mailbox roll … will be the ones that we want on here, … and they're a member of the exchange servers already. … We're going to click to allow full control … by any exchange server, and we'll click Okay. …
