We are setting up an off-site DR location of our exchange server. We few options either convert current exchange server to virtual server in vmware environment or restore to another physical servers.
- edge transport server in DMZ
- exchange with role mailbox server, Hub transport, client access & Unified messaging
- Internal AD
- mailbox storage groups stored in SAN
I am wondering any precautions need to be addressed while restore from Acronis imaging to either physical/virtual to test out in DR environment.
