We currently have a Single Exchange 2010 server named HSMAIL.domain.local
we have built (2) new exchange 2010 Servers with a Mailbox Databases in a DAG. We have a HW Load Balancer and all (3) servers are configured in the Load Balancer, we are planning on retiring the original server HSMAIL after all mailboxes are moved to the New DAG protected Mailbox Databases.
We want to create a CAS Array and are wondering if we can name it HSMAIL.doman.local the same as the current server, configure DNS server to Point HSMAIL.domain.local to the Virtual IP on Load Balancer.
We are hoping that by using the same name that as we move the Mailboxes to the DAG that the users Outlook profiles will not need to be rebuilt or repaired as it would be if the CAS Array had a different name.
Can we use the name of the original server as the CAS array name on the new servers, the original server will not be part of the Array? Or should it be?
