SBS 2011 Exchange
Posted on 2013-05-20
Hello, I'm in need of assistance. I have to 2 remote sites. I have the sites set up to mirror each other, (almost identical as you will see) so in case of a disaster at one site we can pick up at the other site. Our main site contains an SBS 2003 server with exchange which users at both sites connect to for email and our other site contains(which we purchased about a year) an SBS 2011 server with exchange 2010.
So here's the problem I'm having. I was testing the SBS 2011 to see if I could get exchange working and I did but now the user accounts on the SBS 2011 that have email accounts on the SBS 2003 are not able to connect to the SBS 2003 anymore. I think it has to do with SBS 2011 automatically creating mailboxes and directing the user accounts to its own exchange instead of using the one that is already set up in their Outlook. How do I fix this?
The two sites are connected by a cisco vpn and the servers only really communicate via DNS forwards. Any thoughts? Right now I am able to connect the clients via OWA to the SBS 2003 but this is not the preferred method. I need help
