Redundancy setup exchange 2007?
Posted on 2008-11-13
Okay, i am thinking i need some redundancy or at least some sort of backup server for my exchange server 2007. Here is my setup:
1 Exchange 2007 server hosting about 150 mailboxes.
what i want to be able to do:
I want to be able to switch to a new exchange server if something happens to my existing exchange. It doesnt need to be right away without the users noticing it, but I want to be able to reroute the emails to a new server and make sure that all emails are there and the databases are working. Ideally, this server number 2 would be in another localization than my existing server. (in case of fire, etc. )
There are many different scenarios I have seen, but I would like to hear your opinion about what is best for me. I am running on an open value license agreement with exchange enterprise and windows server standard with software assurance.
What would be my best option?
