When patching an Exchange DAG with beekeeper, all the headaches are gone.  Verifying DAG health is just the first step in beekeeper‘s pre-patching validations.

Once the DAG has passed the health checks, the first node is tested and when it passes, patching would begin.  Even more checks are done on the individual Exchange DAG nodes.

Utilizing best-practices for Exchange, beekeeper puts the node into maintenance mode before patching and returns it to service when completed.

The Exchange DAG has been patched, and the mailbox databases stayed online.  Only a single node was patched at a given time to make sure availability is not interrupted.

Supporting Exchange 2010, 2013, and 2016 AAP DAGS, as well as Exchange 2013 and Exchange 2016 IPless DAGs,  beekeeper will get your Exchange DAGs patched.  Adding a DAG into beekeeper is easy, just supply the DAG name.
