Brief history.

Client has two sites. One is their main business address which has several servers (DC, File Server and Exchange 2007)

Just down the road, they have another site they used to use as offices, but have now let go, but they have kept their server room. In there is another server running DFS of all their critical data from the main servers at site 1. This server is also running as a BDC. The link is running using a 1GB laser link.

What they now want to have, is a backup for their exchange 2007 as exchange is essential to their operations, so if the brown stuff was to fly, or burn, they have access to their data very quickly.

Getting to the point, from what I have seen I would need to setup the new server as a cluster server first, install exchange etc. Am I able to upgrade the current exchange server roles to include the continuous replication? I thought I read somewhere that it would involve a full reinstall of the software on the first server. Is this the case, or can I install the various server 2003 and exchange 2007 components.

Are there any good guides as to what to do in an existing exchange set up??

Thanks.
