with it being front end / back end Im not sure if there is any configuration differences?
You do not need an 'exchange-oma' if you have a front-end and a back-end setup. It is applicable only in scenarios where we have a single Exchange Server.

Remove the exchange-oma from the front-end/backend as well as the registry that you have created.

Let us know how it goes.


Will give this a go and post results later today thanks
