We have 2x sites with an exchange 2010 box @ each site.  ASite A and B

Site A has all production mailboxes, site B has none but both are configured the same settings in case we need to utilise site B.

Both have the same CAS and SSL cert installed.  We believe the server at site b is accepting the SSL EAS requests.

I want to either force production server to handle these requests.

Can i achive this?  Where does the external IP address (in our case a firewall) reside?  In the SSL cert or exchange?

Thanks

You need to check with your network team if any Load Balancer is configured to route the traffic to Site B, in that case it need to be blocked

There isnt.  Both are in the same domain, over a VPN connection.
Trying to find out where the external ip addresses are stored?  SSL cert?  DNS?

Also, external IP address will be with Vendor/Service Provider from where you purchased IP addresss .  
Outside DNS will need to point to the address your ISP has given you on the outside.

Your MX Record needs to be the server that is going to receive your emails, in your case if GoDaddy is going to receive it and forward it to you, then it should be their IP Address and GoDaddy folks needs to be provided the internet facing IP of your firewall / router

Is there a way to prioritise the way in which EAS on device setup accesses mail.domain.com from external into our network(s) as it seems to be talking to the backup server?
Must be site a then site b.
