We are testing our exchange 2010 system and a failover problem has come up and I wondered if there is a solution to it?
2 sites each have 1xedge, 1xhub/cas, 1xmail.
I intend to subscribe the edge servers to both sites so that it can deliver to both hub servers so that there is failover at this level.
The mailbox servers are linked via DAG so failover is ok there.
I now know that I cannot create an Array over the 2 sites, but what I wanted to do is setup an array name anyway at DNS level.
So all clients would go through the primary hub server on site 1. Then if this server failed I could use the array DNS name to transfer to site 2 ip address?
Is this viable?
I have tried it but the error I receive when I switch off site 1 hub server and point the DNS entry to site 2 is:
Cannot open your default e-mail folders, Your profile is not configured. (points to array name in servers)
If this isnt viable what other solution could I implement?
Would an option be to add the 2x hub server names to the office MSP installation so that it can see both?
