Adding second Exchange 2010 server
Posted on 2011-03-13
I'm in a lab setup right now, with plans to deploy to production in about a month.
I've successfully installed Exchange 2010 on a single server and it's running well under a testing domain name that I created.
I want to install a second Exchange 2010 server for redundancy and to implement DAGs. I see a lot of information out on the Web about DAGs and how to create them.
But I don't see much information on how to install a second Exchange server.
All versions of Exchange I have run have always been on a single server. I've never had to install a second Exchange server so I don't know how. I need a step by step "how to install your second Exchange server" procedure.
This second Exchange server will be (physically) right next to my primary server. It's function is to serve purely as a backup.
Can someone help me out with this or point me to a document that explains how to do this?
