outlook client redirection to 2nd exchange 2010 server
Posted on 2014-03-27
we had a VMware host failure the other day. one exchange server moved to the other host as expected. the other exchange server, which unfortunately is local disks of the failed host, did not power back on until the host was power cycled. Most people in the office were connected to the exchange server which failed. Those people were not redirected to the other, operational exchange server
How can I set it up so that outlook, once closed and reopened, or once the desktop is restarted and outlook opened, connects to the exchange server that is still operational?
Another thing I noticed was that outlook clients were not redirected to https;//webmail.domain.com. Outlook anywhere is set up and a few times when the link between the office and the data center (where the exchange servers are) went down, I am rather certain it went from TCP/IP to https connection method.
Also wanted to note that mobile devices, configured with https://webmail.domain.com did not lose connection.
any help much appreciated.
