Exchange 2013 site resilience between two exchange servers in Two locations

Hi All,

   I have exchange 2010 installed in one physical server with all the roles. my plan is to install Exchange 2013 with CAS.MBX in my main server room and another Exchange 2013 with CAS.MBX  in my DR site. I will also use Kemp Hardware load balancer.  

I have installed the First Exchange 2013 in Hyper-V in the main server room, can someone advise with a good guide to follow to deploy the second Exchange 2013 in the DR site and configure the DAG.


Thanks

Deploying the second server is simple as installing Exchange 2013 and ensuring the storage configuration is identical to the first.
Once installed, running through the wizard in EMC to add the server to the DAG is all that is required.

As they are going over two sites you will probably want separate URLs for both locations, and you need to configure the second server the same as the first for use with the load balancer.

Thanks Simon , shall I create the required databases in the first server then create the DAG?

It doesn't really matter which way round you do it. If you setup the first server, then the directory structure on the second server is created for you when you add the databases to the DAG.
