Exchange servers not in sync

I have two exchange servers in the same forest/domain but in different sites with different network ids. Both servers are the only ones at their respective site. They therefore perform multiple roles. They are just basic hosting email calendar etc. I would like to use outlook at the second site to log in to that server. The problem I am having is with the information transferring to that server from the first site. What do I need to configure to make that happen?

Exchange is not a product whereby you can synchronize your mailbox data between two or more servers. Your mailbox is located on one server and that is the server where the data will be retrieved from.

If you really want some replication between servers, there are products such as DoubleTake which can do this, and Exchange 2007 Enterprise has new CCR features, although this requires Server 2003 Enterprise & Exchange 2007 Enterprise to work.

I have  the two sites connected on a regular dsl link. I would like the users to be able to open outlook and connect to the local server. I would also like to have a backup in case of failure of one or the other servers. IS the replication software you suggest the only way to accomplish this?

Hi,

Yes, that's correct. You need replication software to achieve this, since Exchange is not designed to have each mailbox hosted on more than one server.

The DoubleTake software is renowned for being quick and easy to configure, and you will get your High Availability (automated failover) included too.
