Hi Experts

please check the attached file

we have
ex0    hub transport and client access
ex1    hub transport and client access and maibox
ex2    hub transport and client access and maibox
ex3    hub transport and client access and maibox


we have DAG configured between ex1 ex2 ex3

now i have OS issue on ex1  and i am thinking to remove it and reinstall it again if i cant mange to fix the OS issue

but i have some questions

1- about public folder DB

PF not part of DAG so i have to move it to other server server manually so can you advice what the best steps to do this task


2- Client Access Server  

all our outlook clients point to ex1 i change this to ex0  for example

Set-MailboxDatabase "DB8" -RpcClientAccessServer ex0.sword.com

but our end users outlooks still remember ex1 so they have to change it manually i don't know if i can configure anything will enforce the outlook to take ex0 as  Client Access Server  


so kindly advice about PF  issue
and
Client Access Server  issue


thanks

Hi,
You will have to create a CAS array. It is recommended to create CAS array even if you have only one CAS server. https://blogs.technet.microsoft.com/exchange/2012/03/23/demystifying-the-cas-array-object-part-1/
Point all the databases to the CAS array( explained in the above article).
This command will point all the databases to FQDN of CAS array.
Get-mailboxdatabase | Set-MailboxDatabase -RpcClientAccessServer <CASARRAY-FQDN>

Open in new window

Create an A record for the FQDN of the CAS Array in your DNS server which points to the IP of EX1.
So even if the EX0 is down it will connect through Ex1. I hope you dont have a load balancer. if you have a load balancer for CAS server you have to point the DNS A record to the virtual IP.

Move your public folder easily

Hi Mas

thanks for your update
 ok good i will try to configure CAS array later  but my problem now  all our  outlook clients

they have ex1.sword.com in there outlook  

so do you have any other way to change this automatically when user start his outlook

or i have to create in our DNS CNAME to point ex1 to ex0   because i will shutdown ex1 for maintenance

When you create a CAS array and point your database to the FQDN of CAS array server will automatically change to the CAS array FQDN.
All your clients will connect through FQDN of CAS array.
If you dont have an A record created your outloojk will not connect. Explained in the article above.
