Microsoft Exchange Server 2010 DAG member remains in Maintenance Mode

After maintenance is performed on a Microsoft Exchange Server the databases are not automatically activated for a Database Availability Group member on an Exchange Server 2010 Mailbox server.

The DatabaseCopyAutoActivationPolicyparameter is set to Blocked.
After maintenance is complete, and the DAGmember is ready to return to service, run the StopDagServerMaintenance.ps1script to take the DAG member out of maintenance mode and put it back into production.
For more information on the StopDagServerMaintenance.ps1 script, see the Performing Maintenance on DAG Memberssection from the following article in TechNet online:
