Thanks for your response.

I`m looking for more detailed instructions - step by step.

I want to install 2 Exchange (CAS role with load balancing) and 2 Exchange (mailbox role).

Should I build 2 failover cluster one for CAS and second for mailbox ?

You need not to configure failover cluster for CAS server. Either you go for Hardware Load Balancer or Windows NLB.

When you configure DAG for mailbox servers, failover clustering is automatically configured  for you. Above links explains the same.

So I should install 2 CAS on separate servers and 2 mailbox on separate servers, and configure DAG ? I don`t need to manually install failover clustering ?

Yes you not need to manually install failover clustering, while creating DAG it will create automatically create cluster, then need to add exchange server into that DAG group. after adding mailbox server into DAG, It will automatic bean a member of cluster
