Exchange server 2013 Shutdown and database activation to DR server
Posted on 2016-10-20
We are planning for a shutdown of data center in our primary data center for a power activity,so i thought of instead of shutting down the exchange servers on primary site i will activate the database on DR exchnage server below is our setup.
Primary site has 2 mailbox server and 2 CAS server and DR site has one mailbox and one CAS server .
i plan to activate all the database to DR mailbox server and shut down the 2 mailbox and 2 CAS server in primary site,i am just worried while starting the server again in primary site after we finish the activity,the if there could be any network loss between primary site and DR site and the database may get activated in the primary site as well as DR site,
please let me know what is the best way and recommendation for this.
