Branch Offices Exchange Servers

Hi All

I have Exchange Servers in the HQ and in the branches, no network routing between the branches and can't see each others, they can only see the HQ.

How can I make the Exchange Server in the HQ is responsible for delivering mails between branches servers without need to make the branches see each others.

 

Thanks

Which version of Exchange?

If 2003, you need separate Routing Groups for the HQ and each branch office. Then create Routing Group connectors between the HQ and every branch office; mail will then flow through the HQ to reach its destination, unless the sender and recipient are located in the same branch office.

If 2007 or 2010, these versions use the Active Directory Sites and Services configuration to determine how to route mail. In this instance, you need to create separate Active Directory sites with connectors between them and the HQ site. Exchange will poll this information and use it to route mail.

I reviewed the routing groups in my organization, and I saw that all y exchange servers in the branch office and in the HQ are existed, and the HQ Exchange Servers is set as Master.

I tried to create Routing Group Connector but I got a message "You must have at least two routing groups in your organization to create a routing group connector"

My idea is that I want the Exchange Servers in the Branches to send mails to each other through the HQ Server that I have no connectivity between them

I have Exchange 2003 SP2

Thanks again

Hi Again

I read about the Routing Groups and Routing Group Connectors.

Please Correct Me:
I should put the HQ Exchange Servers and every branch office Exchange Server in a separated Routing Group Connector, and then to create Routing Group Connectors between them.
In this Configuration, my needs should be done

Creating Active Directory Users from a Text File

If your organization has a need to mass-create AD user accounts, watch this video to see how its done without the need for scripting or other unnecessary complexities.

Are you facing problems ?

In short you have to create a routing group for each branch and then a routing group connector between each branch & the HQ office, nothing more to do

Your idea is correct.

You need to create many routing groups, one for *every* branch office. Also create one for the HQ site.

Finally, create Routing Group Connectors. There should be one connector between every branch and the HQ site.

If you wish to get complicated, you can start designating bridgehead servers in each routing group, but that's for more advanced configurations.

Hi alaaay,

I can ask the Moderators to re-open this question, so you can re-assign the points. There is an "Accept Multiple Solutions" link beside the comments -- you can use that to award points to multiple solutions.
