Refer this article to see how to install Exchange 2010 in a Single consolidated server. In this article I will demonstrate how to configure two node Database Availability Group (DAG) by simple steps.
If you want to configure DAG in between two different sites see my Exchange 2010 DAG Step by Step - Two Member DAG in Two AD Sites article.
My Server setup details as follows.
As shown in above table I am using separate network for Exchange Mailbox Replication. Also keep in mind Windows Server Enterprise Editions are required for configure DAG because it starts "Cluster Service" which required Enterprise editions of Windows servers.
Lets start the configuration.
First we have to configure the both network settings in our Exchange Mailbox servers. For more information regarding Network Configuration of configuring DAG refer this article at Technet.
See network settings of ex1.doitfixit.local exchange mailbox server below.
Remove "Register this connection's addresses in DNS" tick.
Do the same changes to other exchange server also.
We have configured each NIC in both Exchange Mailbox servers. Now we have to bring the MAPI network to top of the Bindings order. To do this press the ALT key, and then select Advanced > Advanced Settings.
Use arrows to move the MAPI network to top of the connections.
We have DB01 Mailbox database in EX1 server and DB02 in EX2 server.
Lets start the Database Availability Group configuration
