Installing First Front-End server Exchange 2003
Posted on 2010-08-23
I have been tasked with installing a front-end server (exchange 2003) into an existing exchange cluster. I am just looking for some pointers here...My plan is to join the new server to the existing cluster, install exchange, mark it as a front-end server, reboot, stop the non-esential services, dismount the mail & public folder database stores. The customer is also looking to use RCP over HTTP so I was looking at what ports require to be open - this server sits behind the corroprate firewall so I guess 80,443 - do I also need to open 6001,6002 & 6004? I also read that I need to mark the back-end servers as RPC-HTTP back-end server's? If you can think of anything else or any best practices that would be a help it would be most welcome.
