Exchange 2010 DC Failover
Posted on 2014-07-14
We are planning to do maintenance of our primary data center, and eventually, entire data center will remain unavailable for at least 10 hours, now, I need to fail-over all exchange services, and make it running from secondary data center. Could you please provide me the steps to do so. Please find the below for server roles.
Server01: Mailbox, CAS, Hub
Server02: Mailbox, CAS, Hub
Server03 Mailbox (No mailbox exist, just role installed), Client Access
Server07 Mailbox, CAS, Hub
i. DAG Member servers are : Server01, Server02, Server07
ii. Outlook clients are connected via load balancer which is pointing to primary CAS array namely
P-CASArray.domain.com and we have another CAS array in secondary site S-CASArray.domain.com.
iii. Webmail is pointing to load balancer and which is also pointing to server01 and server02.
iv. Some applications are using IMAP/POP service from the server03
v. BES service is pointing to server03
Could you please advise how I can make available the following services and steps to do data center fail-over of exchange 2010.
1. Steps to do DAG fail-over to secondary site
2. Outlook connectivity for clients and availability
3. Outlook anywhere availability
