Exchange 2010 / 2013 DAG – Active manager determine/move


In some cases it is needed to determine which server is Active manager for DAG and move it away.

  • Determine which server is active manager

We can use two ways. Powershell or command line cmdlets.

In PowerShell we can use cmdlet:

Get-DatabaseAvailabilityGroup -status | select PrimaryActiveManager 

and parameter -Status is needed to gather current state of DAG.

In CMDline we need to be logged on the server, which is part of DAG or has Windows clustering installed. Then the commad line is simple:

cluster group


Move active manager

easiest way is to use cluster command:

cluster group "cluster group" /move:TARGETMACHINE
