When you do maintenance or need to bounce one of the DAG members, you may want to move Active databases to another server. If you have been using EMC ( GUI) you have noticed it is not efficient and doing repetitive work. Sooner or later you need to switch doing Exchange related task from power shell otherwise , trust me you will run into many problems.
To see your databases
Move-ActiveMailboxDatabase DB1 -ActivateOnServer R1E1 -MountDialOverride:None -confirm:$false
- DB1= Replace this with your DB Name
- R1E1 is the server I will be activating DB1 on
- confirm:$false is going to take care of annoying confirm option
|Move-ActiveMailboxDatabase -Server R1E2 -confirm:$false|
This will move all databases on R1E2 Server
