We have an exchange 2007 server with 10 users and 90GB of emails (yes, large mailbox). We are looking at implementing SCR to a remote site for DR purpose. The WAN link is 10Mbps but has high latency due to far distance.  

Just to check the steps for seetting up SCR to DR Exchange 2007 server:

1. Create a new storage group (e.g. SCR1) on Email server, and setup SCR of this storage group to DR Exchange 2007 server,

2. Manually move individual mailboxes to the new SCR storage group e.g. one per night to allow SCR time to replicate each new mailboxes to DR site.

Is this a workable approach?

Does anyone have the command lines to setup SCR?

Both Exchange servers are 2007 and running on Windows 2008 x64 STD.
