I am running Exchange 2013 on windows 2012 servers that are split between two different sites with two DAG members at each site, and one CAS server on each site. These sites are connected using an MPLS network.
I need to be able to access the Exchange ECP from the secondary site and switchover the databases if the entire connection is severed from the primary site.
owa.domainname.com is the first site and owa2.domainname.com is the second site. When I attempt to access the ECP from the secondary site using the https://owa2.domainname.com/ecp
, I get the login screen but I am then re-directed to http://owa.domainname.com/ecp
when I login, but this connection wont be available when the data line is down.
How can I access the ECP from the secondary site ECP server when needed without getting this re-direction. I will then re-direct my clients through DNS to connect to this CAS on site 2 when needed if the primary location goes down.
