Problem with Exchange 2010 using two Client Access Servers
Posted on 2013-01-16
I'm having some exchange problems on a new install and was wondering about the client access role. I'm setting up a second server at a different site to make a DAG. Whenever I power on the other server within a few minutes clients can no longer send email and it gets stuck in the outbox. Shutting down the second server and restarting the primary eventually resolves the issue. I can't really troubleshoot this effectively since when I turn the other server on it kills email.
While researching this I came across the get-clientaccessserver command. When I run it I see both servers listed when I'd only expect to see one. I don't want the users to connect to the other exchange server yet, especially when it hasn't been fully configured with the DAG.
I suspect this is at least part of my problem and would very much appreciate any feedback.
