Running Exchange 2007 SP2 on Windows 2008 SP2 using SCC active/passive.

Node1: 192.168.1.1.

Node2: 192.168.1.2

CMS: 192.168.1.3

Can anyone tell me what the CMS IP address is associated with? I know Node1 IP is associated with Node1 NIC, and Node2 IP with Node2 NIC, but what about the CMS? What is that IP actually registered against, apart from the CMS 'A' record?

CMS is the Cluster Mailbox Server. It refers to the clustered mailbox at your environment that the user will use to connect to mailbox.
CMS should have CMS name, which is the name of the cluster, and CMS IP address which is the associated IP address for the cluster.

When the request sent from the users to the cluster name/IP address, cluster service will forward the request to the active node, either node 1 or node2. so the user do not need to worry which server is active at any time.
