I need to completely remove the DAG from my test lab, but leave my Exchange servers in the same state they were in before the DAG was formed. As I understand the first step would be to remove all passive DB copies. Next remove the servers hosting those passive copies from the DAG. Beyond this I am not sure how to remove the DAG without destroying active Exchange DBs. Any input greatly appreciated.

The DAG itself is simply a logical replication boundary. Once there are no passive copies you should be able to remove each Exchange server from the DAG, and then delete the DAG.Microsoft Premier Field Engineer, Exchange

Thanks Brian. Worked fine. The DAG is now gone, and Exchange servers are functioning OK as before the DAG was deployed.
