Exchange 2010 Relay cluster

Hey guys,

We are running 2 hub servers in our exchange environment for redundancy.  Right now, relaying is allowed through hub1 for systems that need to send out e-mail.

Is there a way to set the system up so that if hub1 goes down, relaying is automatically switched over and handled through hub2?

setup the relay connector on both, do a NLB between both and let the applications use the NLB IP

Hi Jmparmer,

Apart from using MS fault tolerance features, you can also use hardware load balancers. Like F5 Load Balancer.

Below is an article, which explains all scenario for load balancing feature in Exchange 2010
