Relocate current witness server to another machine

Naturally one of those CAS/HT servers also happened to be the File Share Witness for my two-member DAG. Whoops!

Now Our DAG displays a warning when I check the health of it.Image

Fortunately we can resolve the problem by specifying a new FSW for the DAGm which I will demonstrate here

I’m going to use another member server within the site as my FSW, which allows me to demonstrate a related problem.

Set-DatabaseAvailabilityGroup dag-<DAG Name> -WitnessServer <Witness Server name> -WitnessDirectory C:\FSW

Please Note: If you are configuring to Non Exchange System, you should add the “Exchange Trusted Subsystem” security group
