Exchange 2010 Question (LCR)

Ladies and Gentlemen,

What are my options for HA in Exchange 2010. I would prefer to use LCR since I am using a VMWARE infrastructure and not DAG, but I can't find any documentation to support the setup of LCR on 2010. Any Help would be greatly appreciated.

If LCR is possible please provide a tutorial on how to implement it in 2010.
If DAG is the only option then I would also need a tutorial on implementation for that.

I would prefer to just replicate the database between two drives rather than having to provision a new Exchange 2010 server. This would also save time,money and a headache.

Thanks in advance for your assistance.

Exchange 2010 does not have the concept of LCR

You can check the following article to get information about DAG..

Is there a way to setup DAG on a single server? or do you need two Exchange Servers. I know Microsoft recommends 3 Servers for a fully redundant environment.

I however am looking at least cost atm for a HA solution.

Has Powershell sent you back into the Stone Age?

If managing Active Directory using Windows Powershell® is making you feel like you stepped back in time, you are not alone.  For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why.

No. Minimum 2 servers required to create a DAG...

With single server you have to depend on backups..
