Hi @VJware, Thank you for

Hi @VJware,


Thank you for the response.


So I have been trying to add the DAG via the Add a server wizard under Backup & Restore. I get to the part where I am asked to Enter the name of a domain controller that contains the forest. The issue I now face is that I keep getting an error saying "No Database Availability Groups were found". I have entered both domain controller and DAG names (including FQDNs), but no luck. Screenshots are attached.


Kindly advice when you have a chance - Thanks again.

All nodes do have the remote agent installed, however I think it is the agent for Windows and not the one for Exchange. Unless they are one and the same?

The Dag server was added using the first option (Microsoft Windows computers and servers), from the Add a server wizard.

Click on OK and Finish. Check if the DAG is added or not. If not, restart the remote agent service on all nodes (reboot is preferable, if possible) and then try to readd the DAG again.

Morning VJware, Thank you

Morning VJware,

Thank you very much for the response. Tried again after restarting the remote agent service on the nodes, but no luck. All the nodes were rebooted just last week though. So I am very puzzled.

So after some research I came across the article in the link below:

http://jetzemellema.blogspot.com/2015/01/considering-exchange-2013-dag-without.html

This pretty much sums up how our DAG is setup, i.e. without AAP/CNO. I wanted to know your thoughts on this. Is there by chance a way around this issue?

Thanks.

I believe NBU has a workaround as per https://support.symantec.com/en_US/article.TECH223843.html

However, BE requires a cluster administrative access point as per https://support.symantec.com/en_US/article.TECH218366.html
