Exchange 2010 Disaster Recovery Testing
Posted on 2014-02-17
I've been asked to suggest a method for testing disaster recovery for our Exchange server. We have a single Exchange 2010 box running all the relevant roles.
What I'd like to know is if it's possible to have a second Exchange server in our environment to which I can attach the databases (which I would restore from backup or SAN snapshot) but which otherwise sits unused. Or is there a better way to handle this? I don't want to incur extra licensing charges if it can be helped.
