exchange

we have 1 mailbox server which uses 2 DC which in turn are on exchange server 1 and exchanger server 2. 1 dc is on CAS and Hub Server and other dc is on exchange server which has just EMC installed and is used as management server. both are in same forest

we see CPU hikes during morning hrs , It shows in task manager about high lsasse.exe as users log in during morning but my question is

why the other exchange server which is management server experiences cpu hikes

Check handles count for lsass.exe. If it is above 50K then you will see issue. Also see, which process is actually showing high CPU, when this issue occurs again.

Is this VM or Physical? And how many CPU and RAM assigned to this server.

IS IT because both exchange server send LDAP at same time?

I see you have very low hardware, 4 GB with 1 CPU pretty low. You should minimum get 12-16 GB RAM with minimum 4 -8 cores.

this is 1 part of  answer amit, I am asking why the other server is experiencing high cpu

is it because of intra site replication of DC
