Running Windows 2008 Server with Exchange 2007 on it.

Two nodes: CCR1 and CCR2. The replication is CCR.

I notice if I do ipconfig/all, there is a network connection named: "Microsoft Failover Cluster Virtual Adapter". The IP address is 192.168.12.1/24.

Since this is CCR, there is no SAN or 'proper' clustering in the way of SCC.

Does anyone know what this adaptor does, where it's set, how I can change the IP address etc? If I go to Network Connections > Manage Network connections, I can't actually see this in there!

So looks like someone changed the IP of our Failover adaptor from the APIPA one to 192.168.12.1.

Do you know - is there an issue with running with the APIPA one?

And does the server actually route anything over this adaptor?
