Hi Rancy,

Current Infrastructure is Exchange Server 2007 SCC model with Single HUb & Single CAS, duel Iron Port is being used for SMTP gateway with 2000 user mailbox .

We are planning to Migrate with below feature,

1. Two HUB & CAS in Cas Array
2. Two Mailbox Server is in DAG Functionality.

We are already going to start to installation but I have couple of queries which I posted today itself.

I just wanted to know if any good guidelline is availble for Exchange Hardening.
Perfect for your concern for point 1 & 2

Look i would suggest use Storage Calculator to understand whats best with number of Mailbox DB's you should have .... (Ram, Storage, Bandwidth)

Are you not getting a EDGE but using Ironport itself i guess ?
What exactly do you mean by Hardening ?
