At the end of this video, the student will learn how to setup replication between two or more servers in a Database Availability Group. This will allow for synchronization between Exchange servers so they can maintain high availability in case a DAG member goes offline.
- [McMillen] A database availability group is a…group of servers that can contain a synchronized copy…of an Exchange database.…In a previous video we set up a DAG, so in this video,…we're going to demonstrate how to add copies…of the databases to more than one server and then check…to make sure they are synchronizing properly.…If we go on to the servers link on the left-hand side…in our Exchange admin center and then click on…database availability groups, you can see the group…we've created in the previous video.…
Double-clicking on that group shows us that we have…two servers, EXCHANGE2 and 3 and our Witness server is dc1.…The Witness server allows us to break a tie in case…one of the servers goes down or both servers stay up,…but they cannot communicate with each other for some reason.…Then dc1 as the Witness server will go ahead and make…the decision with the remaining members to allow them to be…the active copy, or allow the specific server…to be the active copy.…
We click on the IP address, we see the shared IP address…
