Hi,

We have two exchange servers, one at Head Office (HO) and one at our Disaster Recovery (DR) site. Currently all our mailboxes are on the HO server and there are only a few test accounts on the DR server.

Assuming worse case and that our main site is knocked out, how would I migrate mailboxes between the two?

Is there a better system than the one I am proposing? Can I have dormant mailboxes on the DR server ready to take over?

thanks.
