Dag in 2 locations
Posted on 2011-03-11
Recently I made aware that we will have to add another exchange 2010 server to a remote office. Remote office is on a different subnet. They have their own DNS, DCHP, & AD server but they are still part of the same domain. There is a 100mb point to point between the remote and main site so bandwidth is not an issue.
From what I understand we can only have 1 cas server per AD domain.
Off the top of my head I was thinking that I can have 1 2010 server at the main site. 1 exchange 2010 at the remote site. DAG it across the WAN
Question I have is, can each CAS server at each location have the RpcClientAccessServer set to the CAS server that's only at their own location?
- we don't want users at the remote location connecting to the cas server at the main office
- we want mailboxes that belong to the users in the remote site to be on the exchange server at the remote site.
- If we could set the RpcClientAccessServer to the CAS server that's only at their own location, would that interfere with how emails will be delivered ?
