Multiple Exchange Servers on Different Sites
Posted on 2007-10-21
We have two sites which will be connected via a branch office VPN using a leased line connection. There will be a Windows 2003 Advanced DC and Exchange 2003 Advanced Server on each site and both will be on the same Windows domain ouroffice.local.
- DFS between each file server
- Each person to be on the same email domain email@example.com
- Ability for people to view each others calendars regardless of which office they are in. All must happen in real time.
I've implemented for other clients, a DC on each site and both sites access an Exchange 2003 Standard which is on one site. The access to emails can be slow. Any ideas?
Is it possible for Messagelabs to send specific emails for specific users to one mail server? This hopefully can split the load. If this is possible then the only traffic going through the VPN is internal emails.
If Exchange Servers are in different forests can users view each others calendars?
