Recovering Crashed Exchange Servers RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi There,

    Currently our 2 Exchange servers crashed at the same time.

    I have 2 domain controllers, which are fully operational and build a new Exchange server which gives me the possibility to edit the Exchange records/config (EX2016MGMT).

    I installed 2 new machines, which are 100% equal to my old servers, EX2016SRV1 and EX2016SRV2
    These are domain joined and now i'm trying to restore them via /m:RecoverServer.

    Problem i have is the following:


    Performing Microsoft Exchange Server Prerequisite Check

        Configuring Prerequisites                                                                         COMPLETED
        Prerequisite Analysis                                                                             FAILED

    The Exchange server is a member of a database availability group.


    I already used the following command:

    Remove-DatabaseAvailabilityGroupServer -Identity EX2016DAG -MailboxServer EX2016SRV1 –ConfigurationOnly

    ADSIEdit shows no server in the DAG anymore, and also running the Get-DatabaseAvailabilityGroup shows 0 Member Servers.

    Any idea how i can get past the error? Since the server is not part of the DAG anymore
