Each database availability group (DAG) network has several properties that you can configure, including the name of the DAG network, a description field for the DAG network, a list of subnets that are used by the DAG network, and whether the DAG network is enabled for replication.

What do you need to know before you begin?
- Estimated time to complete: 1 minute
- You need to be assigned permissions before you can perform this
procedure or procedures. To see what permissions you need, see the
"Database availability groups" entry in the High Availability and
Site Resilience Permissions topic.
- You can configure a DAG network only when automatic network
configuration has been disabled for a DAG. For detailed steps about
how to disable automatic network configuration for a DAG, see
Database Availability Group Properties.
- For information about keyboard shortcuts that may apply to the
procedures in this topic, see Keyboard Shortcuts in
the Exchange Admin Center.
What do you want to do?
Use the EAC to configure database availability group network properties
- In the EAC, go to Servers > Database Availability
- Select the DAG you want to configure, and in the Details pane,
under the DAG network you want to configure, choose:
- Disable Replication or Enable
Replication Configures the replication
settings for the DAG network.
- Remove Removes a DAG network. Before
you can remove a DAG network, you must first remove all associated
subnets from the DAG network.
- View details Configures DAG network
properties, such as the name, description, and associated subnets
for the DAG network. You can also view the network interfaces
associated with those subnets, and enable or disable replication
for the DAG network.
- Disable Replication or Enable Replication Configures the replication settings for the DAG network.
Use the Shell to configure database availability group network properties
This example adds a subnet of 10.0.0.0 and subnet mask of 255.0.0.0 to the DAG network MapiDagNetwork in the DAG DAG1.
Set-DatabaseAvailabilityGroupNetwork -Subnets 10.0.0.0/8 -Identity DAG1\MapiDagNetwork
How do you know this worked?
To verify that you've successfully configured the DAG network, do the following:
- In the Shell, run the following command to display DAG network
configuration settings and verify the DAG network was configured
Get-DatabaseAvailabilityGroupNetwork <DAGNetworkName> | Format-List
