  • How to configure 2 Exchnage servers, to backup each other?

    Hi There
    I have one exchange server and I would like to have another one, in case of one goes done, so the second one will take over.
    I need a solution which is not a cluster, if it's possible.

    Thanks.

    Can't be done natively.
    You cannot have mailboxes on two servers.

    If you don't want to go down the cluster route, then you are looking at something like DoubleTake. That will mirror the primary server and in the event of a failure take over. It isn't totally transparent - there is a slight delay while it kicks in, but is probably the best you will get without a cluster.

    Simon.
