In the ideal world, can anyone please let me know what and how is Exchange Server 2007 SP3 CCR mailbox role send out email from the Production node and from the DR node ?
in my current situation I have the following:
MailCluster.domain.com (Cluster name for Outlook MAPI connectivity)
IP1: 192.168.1.115 --> During Production node active
IP2: 192.168.12.3 --> During DR node active
PRODMBX1.domain.com (Production node)
NIC 1: 192.168.1.17
NIC 2: 10.1.1.2, 10.1.1.3 --> for CCR replication to DR node
MS Failover Cluster Virtual Adapter IP: 169.254.1.61
DRMBX1.domain.com (DR node)
NIC 1: 192.168.12.29
NIC 2: 10.1.9.2, 10.1.9.3 --> for CCR replication to Production node
MS Failover Cluster Virtual Adapter IP: 169.254.2.14
Can someone please clarify my understanding if it is correct or not :
Under ideal condition, the email running from production node, when received in the external email provider (eg. GMail or Yahoo or Hotmail), the Original message header should show the MailCluster.domain.com (192.168.1.115), but how come, it is now showing the MailCluster.domain.com (169.254.1.61) ? the cluster virtual network adaptor instead of 1.115 ?
and when I fail it over to DR mailbox server, the original message header shows from
MailCluster.domain.com (10.1.9.2) ? the CCR network instead of the 12.3 ?
