I have one DR exchange server, when I run the cmdlet "get-databaseavailabilitygroup -status |fl"


Additional info: I have been executed the below cmdlet

Set-MailboxServer DREXG01 -DatabaseCopyAutoActivationPolicy Blocked

is this the reason the server is in maintenance?

Thank you.

    According to my test, you are right.
    The following is my test result. When I set the parameter of the server E19A'DatabaseCopyAutoActivationPolicy' to "Blocked", I can see that E19A appears in the "ServersInMaintenance" result. After changing "DatabaseCopyAutoActivationPolicy" to the default "Unrestricted", E19A no longer appears in the "ServersInMaintenance" result
