Setting up SCR for Exchange 2007 to remote site

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.


Thanks.

ArneLovius - The DR site does not have any IT staff so  the preferred method is to perform any changes remote/online instead of shipping HDDs or servers there.

lciprianionut - if the DB is 70GB will it be able to successfully seed the replica or timeout after a few hours? I am guessing it would take 2 days to replica/seed the remote SCR. The latency is 200ms which is normal for a DR site on the opposite location on Earth.

Has anyone successfully create a SCR for large SCR (70GB) remotely? Thanks.

Closing question to bypass Expert Exchange stupid restriction as I have another critical Exchange problem.
Experts Exchange is like having an extremely knowledgeable team sitting and waiting for your call. Couldn't do my job half as well as I do without it!
