2 site/server setup
Posted on 2006-06-21
I have a new 2003 setup. I started with one exchange server at the main site, then installed another at the main site, moved some mailboxes, and moved the second exchange server to the remote site. Right now both servers are behind firewalls, and communicate through a sonicwall point to point VPN. Neither server is configured as a frontend server.
The MX records point to the main site. What would be a good configuration to allow both servers to function somewhat independently, that is if one site is down email routes to the remote site? Another MX record pointing to the remote site with a different weight? Would email then route to the remote site and then be held in que until the main site is back on line? What would I have to configure for this to work?
