Standby Server

Hi,

I have an Exchange 2003 Server, which works fine. I have created a second box, same hardware, Operating System e.t.c I have installed Exchange and added this server to the same Administrative Group as the working Exchange Server.

In the event of a failure I want to be able to restore from an NTBACKUP of the original server to this new server and allow the users to keep working (I know server names would be different,so profiles would need updating). Will this work, or am I better off exploring a different avenue?

I have read about adding a server to a workgroup, installing Exchange in Disaster Recovery mode, then adding it to the domain and restoring the databases, is this a better solution?

Thanks.

If you have the same hardware available, then I would look at DoubleTake. It will be much easier for you to get the users back up and running.
