We are in the process of moving the DR site for my DAG. How long can a DAG member be down that does not host any active database copies? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I will be shutting down the DAG member at the DR site and moving it to a DR site in another state.   I will also be moving 2 CAS/hub servers located in the DR site to the new site.  Since we are completely taking the site down we will be moving the IP ranges to the new site, so the IP addresses for the Mailbox server and the 2 CAS/Hub servers will stay the same.  The server move will take about a week and a half, so the mailbox server will be down for a while.  Will this cause any issues with my DAG when bringing the mailbox server back online?  I know it will generate a lot of replication traffic, but less replication traffic than a new mailbox server would generate.  Should I just put the Mailbox server in maintenance mode until I bring it back online?  Thanks in advance for your feedback.

  • Hi,

    Yes you can keep mailbox in maintenance mode or you can remove this mailbox server from DAG for a while. Once you are shut up the server then add it back in the DAG.
