At the end of this video, the student will learn how to manually cut over from one DAG member to another that both hold copies of an Exchange database. This is a good idea if you know the active server needs to go down for maintenance, or is experiencing problems.
- [Instructor] Database availability groups…in Exchange Server 2016, allow us to have high availability…in an exchange environment,…where one database can be failed over to the other…in case of a node outage.…This is a good idea if you know the active server…needs to go down for maintenance,…or is experiencing problems.…In previous videos, we demonstrated how to set up a DAG,…now let's discuss and demonstrate…how to move the active database from one server to another…in case we are experiencing issues…or need to bring the active node down for maintenance.…
Let's go to our exchange admin center,…and, on the left hand side, click on servers,…and, at the top, click on databases.…And our database at the top, we can see resides on…both EXCHANGE2 and EXCHANGE3.…On the right hand side, when we highlight the database,…we can see the database copies.…We can see that it's mounted on EXCHANGE2.…And we can see there's a passive copy on EXCHANGE3.…Let's pretend that EXCHANGE2…is gonna go down for maintenance,…or that we recently lost communication with it.…
