Good afternoon Experts,

I am looking to setup an Exchange environment for HA on both the CAS and Mailbox Servers. My goal is to ultimately have 2 CAS servers and 2 Mailbox servers, each being a separate VM, 4 servers total.

Does anyone have any good configuration documents for this setup?

Thank you in advance,
JENLOR

Why do you want two CAS role servers?
That isn't best practise. Two servers with all roles, load balancer cover them, then have another server off site.  

Exchange hardware configuration isn't difficult - Microsoft have standard guides. In the main, all servers are identical. Three arrays - one for the OS, one for Transaction Logs and one for the databases.

Simon.
