Need Help ASAP with Company Merger & Exchange Server 2010
Our company has a physical 2010 standard exchange server with 5 stores that add up to over 900 GB and the server has almost 800GB free space available. The other company has a physical standard exchange server with about 200 GB.
A consultant is in charge of the exchange servers... In a meeting, the consultant explained that he is going to import the other companies email into our exchange server then create a new virtual secondary 2010 exchange server at the remote site and sync the exchange servers.
I was basically told to shut up when I asked how he would sync the 2 exchange servers.
My questions is:
Is it possible to import the other companies 200GB of email to our 900gb email server - sync all that email to the new virtual email server at the remote site (both sites hold the same email) knowing the free space on our mail server.
I would have created a DAG - left their email at the remote site - synced their 200gb to our server - and our 900gb to their server.
Please help me understand how he is going to do this.
