We have 2010 Exchange server. the Data storage on the A server is almost full and I'm trying to add a second B exchange server  so i can move a few mailboxes from the 1st Exchange over to the 2nd one.
1-Is it the same installation like i'm going to install the 1st A Exchange server?
2- Do i need to select typical or custom installation? Do i need to select all the roles that i have installed on Exchange Server A?
3- What do i need to configure so i can make Exchange A talk to Exchange B?
Can you please send any recommended link so i can follow on my set up?
Thanks
Ed

1. Yes.
2. Select Custom and just pick Mailbox role.
3. Shouldn't need anything if just a mailbox role only.

Found this video on the process too. You can skip to the 2 minute 20 seconds mark as you don't need to make a CAS Array. Also, you can probably stop watching after a couple of minutes as he goes into making DAGs, unless you want to learn more about those.

Nope. You would have already done that with the first server. Its just a one time thing. Well, sometimes a newer service pack may apply more updates but I am assuming you are using the same binaries to install the second server.
