Multiple Exchange 2010 Servers Within The Same Organization

Hi All,

We have a customer with an international footprint.

They currently have an exchange server in Spain (all roles on this one machine) and we are building another one for them in Australia (again all role will be installed on this one machine) for their Australian staff.

Both exchange servers will be on the same domain but on different subnets.

We would only like the Australian staff to access the Australian server, however, we would like them to be able to see all the current mailbox users and distribution groups and what not.

We would prefer for the servers to not replicate to one another.

What is the best way to go about this? Will setting up a DAG be the right thing to do?

Thanks and really hoping someone can assist.

Thanks

Joe

If they are in the same forest, then the data you want will be seen by all users on the platform no matter where they are. Exchange does not operate on its own server, it is a forest wide application and therefore all mail enabled users in the forest are seen in the GAL by default.

The only thing you may have to replicate is public and system folders, if you are using Outlook 2003 then system folders are still used for the free/busy information.

As you specifically said you don't want the servers to replicate, a DAG is not something that you need. That is a mailbox data replication system, so isn't suitable.

Hi Simon,
Thanks for the explanation.
We ended up getting the second Exchange server up and did notice that we were able to see the users/distro groups.
Thanks
