Our current setup is a Laptop as our primary DC running Server 2008, and all other servers are virtual on the DC using virtualization software. These virtual machines are stored on NETAPPS servers, which allows for larger storage and greater resources for the virtual machines. The goal behind this setup is for Domain access before and after all the physical servers are setup/taken down.
Now to my question, I would like to utilize this concept even further by installing a secondary exchange server locally on the Laptop, and having all mailboxes migrated/synchronized to the secondary. I'm not sure if that "migration/synchronization" is possible, which is the first part of my question, and of course the "how" is the second part. It wouldn't have to be a long-term solution, just temporary as the physical servers are moved/setup/taken down.
Thanks in advance!
