  • Thank You for your post here

    ""in my lab i accidentally deleted the DAG server object in AD""

    Did you mean that you went into the Configuration Partition and Deleted the DAG Container from there ?

    The reason why i am asking this is Once Object is deleted from AD it Shouldnot be Displayed in Exchnage as well because that is the source where exchange gets the Objects from.

    Can you send me a screenshot of where you exactly deleted the object from

    Regards

  • Indeed, as Fazal mentioned, if you delete the object from the AD, it should be gone.  can be a latency/replication lag issue, so in so 30-45 minutes this should get solved...

  • You also need to use Failover Cluster Manager to remove the nodes from the cluster.

  • Sorry for the late responce getting back to you.

     

    I deleted the object from ADUC, and after this i couldnt remove the servers from the DAG, i first had to remove all database copies then move mailboxes over to another live database, delete the database, after this i could remove the  servers from the DAG.
