Exchange 2010 servers in 2 different locations.
Posted on 2013-10-22
Our company has 2 sites in one AD domain.
in site 1 there are 2 Exchange servers, and site 2 also two exchange servers.
I am sitting in site 1. on EMC I can see only 2 Exchange servers that are local to site1, but I can see mailboxes of users that are in both sites (site1 and site2).
just to confirm which server is hosting which mailbox, I initiated new local move request for a mailbox of a user that is in site2 ,and it opens up a window and I can see under the database field,
The Exchange server name of site2, something like Exchsite\storagegroup2\MDB2.
My question is I cannot see any server of site2 in EMC, when I expand server configuration / and select mailbox or client access or Hub Transport.
it seems like users in site2 have their mailboxes shown in our EMC, but from our EMC we cannot see their Exchange servers(invisible).
How is this set up and why?
Any idea ?
