Hi,

I have a client who recently setup a "Disaster Site" where every server from the first site gets replicated in case of a major disaster.  Data can be easily synchronised (DFS), Active Directory too but what about Exchange ?

What he wants is that every mailbox has a replica on the second server, therfore in case of a crash/fire/earthquake/whatever a user can log on (using Citrix) to the other site and keep working as if nothing happened.

I can replicate Public Folders that's easy (using ExSCfg.exe) but what about the mailboxes ? Is there an Msoft tool or should I use a third-party like DoubleTake ?

Txs.

Microsoft doesn't have an out-of-the-box tool for this, other then ntbackup and xcopy ;)

If you want to setup a DR site, you're looking at possible ways to replicate the current data to the other site and prefferably as fast as possible to reduce data loss and downtime.

Third Part tools are available (and yes DoubleTake is one of them), DataDomain(.com), Diligent.com,avamar.com and even veritas are possible other solutions. It really depends on how and where data is stored in the live datacenter and the connection between the two sites as well as hardware factors and business needs to write a good DR scenario.
