  • Exchange 2007 mailbox redundancy

    Exchange 2007 SP2
    Win2k8 SP2

    in the traditional sense of a server "cluster", there would be two or more servers acting as mirrors of the other server. similar to RAID 1+0 in hard drives. after much googling it always comes up with LCR,SCR,SCC which is not i'm looking for.

    how does one create a redundancy for the mailboxes (plus public folders) such that when one server goes offline, the remaining server/s will take over?

    SCC -- "traditional clustering" is the option you need
    Consider upgradeing to 2010 where you get the far more flexible, and much easier to set up, DAGs as a high availability solution

      thanks for the reply.

      from what i gathered googling, SCC requires more hw resources (a shared storage re: SAN/NAS). i found that CCR is more like it.

        A CCR will require a total of four servers - as you cannot have CAS and Hub Transport on the CCR, so a lot more resources will be needed.

        Moving to Exchange 2010 is a better option, as you can do mailbox data high availability with just two Exchange servers and client access using a third party load balancer.
