  • SCR/LCR insted of clustering 2 exchange servers?

    Hi,
    I have 2 Exchange 2007 Standard servers on the same domain.
    One is active the second is not in use at the moment.

    I would like to have the Second server as a Passive server so that if the First Exchange server were to crash the Second could take its place instantly.

    I can't use clustering becuse I run Win Server 2003 Standard on both servers.

    So, can "Standby Continuous Replication" fit in place of a cluster?

    Thanks

    Single Copy Servers are not supported by the standard edition.
    Only LCR (Local Continiues Replication) and SCR (Standby Continiues Replication) is supported by exchange 2007 standard edition.

    this means there is no automatic failover for the Standard edition (At least not out of the box). Yet to provide Fault Tollerance SCR si your best option.

        Ok it's a lot off reading, but it should give you an idea about SCR.

        LCR does only protect you against database corruption or diskfailure.
        It provides an second instance of your datastore, so if anything happend to it, you can switch it to the other (Hopefully Working) copy.
