Finding and Fixing DAG Cluster Owner

If you are working with Exchange 2010 DAG and run into the issue where it can’t failover to a passive note then you may need to find who is the cluster owner and you may need to move the cluster owner . You may also restart the cluster service depending on the scenario. Below are few steps which will identify the current cluster owner and how to move from one node to another. Specially this will help in the DAC (Data Center Activation) scenario where the cluster owner is on the remote site and after failover cluster owner remains there and database does not mount on the primary site.

In my lab DAG name is ‘DAG1’ and nodes are E14-SRVR1 & E14-SRVR2

[PS] C:Windowssystem32>cluster.exe ‘dag1’ group ‘cluster group’/moveto:e14-srvr2

Moving resource group ‘cluster group’…

Group                Node            Status
——————– ————— ——
cluster group        E14-SRVR2       Online

[PS] C:Windowssystem32>Get-DatabaseAvailabilityGroup -Identity dag1 -Status | fl name,primaryactivemanager

Name                 : DAG1
PrimaryActiveManager : E14-SRVR2
———————————————————————————————————————————————————————

Now moving the cluster owner back to E14-SRVR1

[PS] C:Windowssystem32>cluster.exe ‘dag1’ group ‘cluster group’/moveto:e14-srvr1

Moving resource group ‘cluster group’…

Group                Node            Status
——————– ————— ——
cluster group        E14-SRVR1       Online

[PS] C:Windowssystem32>Get-DatabaseAvailabilityGroup -Identity dag1 -Status | fl name,primaryactivemanager

Name                 : DAG1
PrimaryActiveManager : E14-SRVR1

Move often asked what it need to setup a running/testing email server? What do I need to do after I install the Exchange 2013/2010 Server. Below are some basic steps I mean basic not all. If this is your very first time you will need to set it up before or after you install the Exchange Server 2013/2010 and then follow the instruction on Microsoft TechNet for Exchange Server

#1. Get the Domain name from the registrar e.g. CONTOSO.COM from Godaddy or any domain reseller
#2. Get the Public IP for your Exchange server from your networking team or ISP
#3. Now Ask the registrar to create the DNS Records for you and point them to your internet IP

example your IP is 10.20.30.41 have them create

A  Record mail.contoso.com 10.20.30.41
CNAME  Record autodiscover.contoso.com
CNAME Record owa.contoso.com
MX  Record mil.contoso.com
Add Accepted Domain in Exchange Server
Configure the Email Address Policy
Create a SEND Connector
Install the digital certificate on Exchange (which you bought from Godaddy)
Configure the IIS and SMTP Service on the cert
Set the Virtual directories

When you think everything is configured properly then test it – http://www.TestExcangeConnectivity.com
