I'm sorry to dig out a topic that was already discussed many times (e.g. here
) but I cannot find a clear statement. How do I recover a failed Exchange DAG node correctly and is it possible to recover a whole DAG by restoring all DAG nodes? I'm afraid of crashing my DAG when restoring a single failed DAG node with full vm restore like it might occur for Active Directory unless you use vss to let Veeam do the work for you (fully automated non-authoritative restore).
Assuming one of three DAG nodes failed and will not boot up anymore. Is it possible to restore a DAG node by use of Veeam full vm restore without risking Exchange configuration or Active Directory corruption and the node cannot mount any databasecopies at worst? Or am I forced to recover a failed node by installing a fresh server with same configuration (ip, name etc.) and install Exchange with "Setup /m:RecoverServer" (Whitepaper
)? I want to safe time and minimize effort and surely restore the whole DAG vm will be much more faster. Or in other words: Does Veeam provide similar recovery features for Exchange recovery as they do for Active Directory?
