MNS Fileshare witness

1. I had deployed the exchange 2007 CCR for high availablity of the Mailbox server
2. Created the MNS quorum (MNS File share Witness) in HUB/CAS server
Now i need to deploy the NLB for the HUB/CAS server, as hub role is reduntant by default feature of exchange 2007 (as more than one hub transport server is present in the exchange 2007 organization)
But MNS File share Witness needs to created in the hub transport role server (suggested by Microsoft), How i need to create this as I am doing the NLB ??

Please go through my concerns.................

1. What will happens if the current witness server fails (not available in the network), that is CAS/HUB server??
2. How I can do the NLB for both HUB/CAS server and how will i configure MNS file share witness???

3. Please find the diagram for the current exchange 2007 organization

Hi,
Just came across your question. See in case CCR fails you can use Forcequorum. Refer:
