Exchange 2007 File Share Witness in NLB

Hello All,

in my test environment. i have 2 CAS+HUB servers with NLB, and 2 MB servers with CCR.
i need a way that if one CAS+HUB1 hosting FSW fails. Clustered MB Servers start using FSW that is on CAS-HUB2 automatically.
i dont want to do it manually

What you are asking is not possible.

You can configure a standby FSW on a second server, with necessary permissions as the first one, so that it can be swapped quickly.
I do agree FSW needs to be configured manually there is no automatic failover for MNS FSW.

If you remember you have given some commands to enable file share witness.
