Exchange 2010 CAS array question
Posted on 2010-11-12
can someone please clarify the following questions:
we are using hardware load balancers, both internal and external facing.
we have 2 CAS servers.
1. if i create a new CAS array. call it: CASarray.domain.net, would i need to publish this name on the internal load balancers? i.e. would the internal host A DNS record point to the load balancers for CASarray.domain.net?
2. we are publishing OWA as mail.domain.net. would i set the internal name on the CAS servers, and create a host A record to point to the internal load balancers?
3. for the external facing load balancers, would for example the mail.domain.net external DNS record point to the VIP on the external load balancers, and would then in turn route to the internal load balancer that is publishing mail.domain.net?
4. do we require an SSL certificate to publish EWS? I was planning on using the name:mail.domain.net to publish activesync/OA/OWA/ECP. is this acceptable?
thank you very much in advance,
