  • Hi chotu,

    I would like to clarify the following things to answer your questions.

    1. Exchange 2010 DAGs provide automatic failover and recovery at the database level rather than the server level. When you deploy multiple Mailbox servers with multiple copies of mailbox databases without requiring clusters.

    2. Because of the above changes, building a high-availability Mailbox server solution no longer requires cluster hardware or advanced cluster configuration.

    What's more, here is an article for your reference.

    Hope my clarification is helpful.

    Best regards,

  • Hi

    Are you referring to Failover Cluster Manager? What are you trying to achieve?

  • Hi

    Clustering hasn't been removed, you just don't have to configure it manually as it is done automatically during the DAG setup process.
