I thought if you have 2 or more exchange servers FE is used to proxy the external request to exchange server

I meant if you have just one single Exchange server 2003 in the organization then there is no need for FE
if you have 2 Exchange servers 2003 in your organization then FE is necessary.

if you have 2 node passive/active Exchange Cluster, that I am not sure if necessary?

FE is for OWA users. of course.

let s put itthis way:


Scenario 1:

2 node cluster passive/active: do we need FE for external users (OWA)?

Scenario 2

let's say we have 2 exchange servers in the organization (parent /child domain), do we need FE for external users (OWA)?

I thought with 2 node active /passive is not necessary to have FE as it is considered as just one server.
