Configuring Additional Exchange 2010 in a Different AD Site
Posted on 2011-02-22
1 Domain - domain.com
2 AD Sites - A(192.168.0.0) & B(126.96.36.199)
1 Exchange 2010 Std SP1 with CAS and HUB (servername vowvh02)
1 Exchange 2010 Std SP1 with MB (servername vowvh005)
both vowvh002 and vowvh005 are located in AD site A
Autodiscover, OWA, activesync, etc are configured on vowvh002, and I would like it to remain the same.
Now, I have just installed an Exchange 2010 Std SP1 with CAS, HUB and MB in AD site B - servername is vowpd002. All of the users' mailboxes in this AD site B is currently still in the vowvh005 server. I would like to eventually move these users to this new Exchange server, vowpd002. Before doing that, though, I would like to configure this new Exchange server to send/receive all external emails through the existing CAS/HUB server - vowvh002. (I am assuming that internal emails should be processed automatically and no configuration is necessary, correct?) Similar to how Exchange 2003 used to be with Front End and Back End server. I think in Exchange 2010 they call it Proxying and/or Redirection. So basically, the only reason for this new Exchange 2010 server, vowpd002, is to store mailboxes of those users located in that particular AD site, which will improve Outlook email access performance due to WAN point to point limitation (T1), as well as conserving space on the existing MB server. Would someone please point me to the right direction on this?
