Get-DatabaseAvailabilityGroup

This cmdlet is available only in on-premises Exchange.

Use the Get-DatabaseAvailabilityGroup cmdlet to obtain a variety of configuration settings, status and other information about a database availability group (DAG).

For information about the parameter sets in the Syntax section below, see Exchange cmdlet syntax (https://technet.microsoft.com/library/bb123552.aspx).

Syntax

Get-DatabaseAvailabilityGroup
   [[-Identity] <DatabaseAvailabilityGroupIdParameter>]
   [-DomainController <Fqdn>]
   [-Status]
   [<CommonParameters>]

Description

In addition to obtaining a list of DAG members, the Get-DatabaseAvailabilityGroup cmdlet can also be used to view real-time status information about a DAG, such as:

  • OperationalServers

  • PrimaryActiveManager

  • ReplicationPort

  • NetworkNames

  • WitnessShareInUse

Use the Status parameter with the command to include the values for these listed properties. Without the Status parameter, the values returned for these properties are blank.

You need to be assigned permissions before you can run this cmdlet. Although this topic lists all parameters for the cmdlet, you may not have access to some parameters if they're not included in the permissions assigned to you. To find the permissions required to run any cmdlet or parameter in your organization, see Find the permissions required to run any Exchange cmdlet (https://technet.microsoft.com/library/mt432940.aspx).

Examples

-------------------------- Example 1 --------------------------

Get-DatabaseAvailabilityGroup DAG1 | Format-List

This example displays the basic properties of the DAG DAG1. The output for the command is formatted as a list.

-------------------------- Example 2 --------------------------

Get-DatabaseAvailabilityGroup DAG2 -Status | Format-List

This example displays the properties of the DAG DAG2. Because it includes the Status parameter, the task also displays real-time status information for DAG2, such as the current list of operational servers and the server currently holding the Primary Active Manager role. In addition, several properties of the DAG, such as the witness server and directory configuration information are also displayed. The output for the command is formatted as a list.
