  • 2010, 2nd server to hold specific mailboxes for a off state office

    Hey all


    We are moving to exchange 2010 and i was wondering whether it would be possible to have a second mail server that would hold the mailboxes of users from that state. All of the emails would still come in to the main exchange server but if clients had to sync a mailbox instead of doing it over the VPN they could just do it from their local server.

    If so what licensing would be required i.e. would we need a full fledged exchange install or couldwe get away with something less.

    our main site has ~ 110kb/sec upstream for 4 offices with dc's at the moment, pushing for 2 more adsl connections as a tempoary fix before the new office with fibre, b/w and good web conns is quite expensive here in australia.

    thanks!

    Yes, this would be possible and of course you need for each Exchange 2010 server a at least a standard licence.

      You will need the CAS role at each site too or users will not be able to connect

        Just install another Exchange server with the three key roles. It will need its own host name for easy remote access.

        Exchange will sort out where the email is delivered to. If setup correctly, then the server could be used for inbound email delivery in the event of a problem at your main site, even if it is to just queue the email.

        The servers will need to be connected in some way, site to site VPN and I would probably suggest a domain controller goes in that office as well. DO NOT install Exchange on a domain controller as that will impact on Exchange operations in your home office.

          Thankyou All for your replies, the extra standard license means that it wont be happening for a very long time if at all due to the it budget but at least i know now.

          Again thanks for the answers
