Double - Take Availibility ( for Ms Exchange )

I wonder how to setup double-take availability for and exchange server ( physical server ) to destination virtual machine.

Actually how does replication works with double-take availability ? I means physical server where we ran exchange 2010 now have been installed and running, so if I have new virtual machine installed, do I need to install the exchange server in virtual machine ? or double-take availability will do restore through it programs and start synchronization ?

It is the data base the Exchange 2010 keeps all of the data. In Exchange 2010, they are referred to Database Availability Groups. Basically, there is a primary and a secondary, if there is a failure, clients are pointed to the database on the second mailbox server. We run two mailbox server at our production site and two mailbox servers at our DR site. The data is constantly sync'd. Once copy is set to stay 24 hrs behind the rest in the event of a corrupt database.

I am not familiar with Double-Take, but why are you worrying with something like that? You could just set up a separate Exchange server and use the DAG's. The fail over works very well.

However, below is a link on how to configure Double-Take and how the fail over works with 2010.
