Recovering failed hub&cas server - Exchange 2007 SP3 - Windows 2008 Standard SP2
Posted on 2013-06-02
I have two hub&cas servers (both roles are installed on each server), one server crashed and we are now relaying on other server only which is functional and no down time for the users as emails are flowing, since two servers were providing kind of load balancing hence we are rebuilding second server on the new hardware with the same name and configurations using "setup /m:RecoverServer"
After completing the setup and before doing post recovery steps e.g importing SSL certificate. User's outlook may automatically try to connect (autodiscover) to this server and outlook may through some errors until certificate is enabled.
Is there anyway to prevent outlook to connect to this server until it is fully recovered.
