Hello All,

I implemented a exchange 2013 server in our site. I want to implement a second server with both cas and mailbox for fail over. I already installed the second exchange server only with mailbox role, and I removed the default database from the second exchange server.

My question is,

Will it mess up prod server and effect mail flow if I also install the CAS role and setup the virtual directories on the secondary exchange server?

2nd Question: The config needs to mirror the first exchange server correct? (virtual databases, send,receive connectors, and storage setup correct?)

What is your end goal? active/passive or active/active design. note lot of planning and cost involved in both solution. You need messaging architect to design the HA solution. Just installing server will not give you any HA.

So basically,

A long as auto discover and virtual directories match the old exchange server everything should be okay theoretically?
