  • Extend Exchange

    Hi Every1

    Ihave setup of single domain forest with Exchange setup(CCR) in Site A. Due to rise in Number of mailboxes and users at Site B would like extend Exchange setup to Site B.

    Site A:
    Subnet: 192.168.x.1/24
    Two Domain controllers with GC(first domain controller holds all the roles)
    Exchange setup with CCR and Single machine designated as HUB/CAS(No Edge Transport Server Installed)

    Site B:
    Subnet: 192.168.y.1/24
    One Domain Controller

    Two sites communicating through LeasedLine of 1Mbps Bandwidth. To accommodate new users shall go ahead with MailBox Server(CCR) if yes i request all guide me in right direction...

    How many users in site B?
    IMHO use Outlook Anywhere to pick up from site A unless you are talking about very large volumes of traffic within site B
    (remember all internet email will come into site A before being passed on to B)

        Re: Extend Exchange

        OK, so maybe a site B server is required
        AFAIK, just get the appropriate hardware and licenses and set up as before, specifying an additional server in an existing exchange organisation. You might want to get a book on Designing Exchange Solutions (Exam 70-237 I think) to give you some ideas first

            Re: Extend Exchange

            Are you saying you want a cluster split between two sites?
            I dont think it can work that way (shared information store among other things)

            Or do you want to add an additional server to your cluster at Site A (again, dont think it can be done)

                Re: Extend Exchange

                OK, so second cluster at Site B

                As I suggested, do a bit of reading on Distributed Exchange Organisations, then set it up as you did the first one.
