  • Hop count (defining routing topology with RGCs)

    Hello all,
    I was lurking for very much time this forum and site and now it's time to post my first item.

    Exchange Server 2003.
    Well, based on the image below, what would be the next-hop server for a server in Routing Group X who is sending an e-mail to a server in Routing Group Z?

    My considerations:
    the RGC X-Z has an higher cost then the X-Y, but the total cost for reaching the Routing Group Z, is the same;
    so, what will be the next hop Routing Group in this case? Has the hop count some value?

    Found these particulars nowhere.

    Ps. Studying for the 70-285.

    As far as I was aware it would take the most direct route first.

      I believe if the cost is the same then hop count is used.
