New to exchange.  What I need to do is move all mailboxes from one site to another site, like a DR

Topology is:
Site A and Site B:  Each have Four servers, 2 have CAS Server, Hub Transport Server, Mailbox Server, Public Folder Server, the other 2 have CAS Server, Hub Transport Server, Mailbox Server

Have one DAG at each site and two CAS servers

From what I understand, I believe I'd want to move the active DB copy to another DAG member, switchover?  Looking at this link:  http://www.techrid.com/exchange-server-2010/moving-the-active-database-copy-to-another-dag-member-in-exchanger-server-2010/

Any advice or guidance would be appreciated.

and my system restore images are being deleted

Thanks for your help...

Kicked off a full backup and not sure why the option to continually run didn't show. I suspect something with imagemanager. I ran a full backup with the idea that I would create an incremental backup and schedule it to run each night, assuming it would presume from the full image. Is this an option or do I have to run a new full backup with incremental's?

Thank you.

Lost a server yesterday that had a RAID 1 Mirror configuration on it.  Could not boot to the mirrored drive and don't understand why not.   I thought that if you replaced the failed drive and tell it to rebuild the array. New to working with RAID.  Replaced the original drive and still could not get it to boot and rebuild.  Had to rebuild the server from scratch.  What did I do wrong?

Is there a way to sync two window 10 machine?

Should occur automatically daily.

Would be a plus is it would sync but ways so both can be used.

If yes how? (Is it a future build into windows or this party software needed? If a third party what would you recommend?)

Do they need to be on the same location/network?

Does the hardware need to be identical (size, type, raid)

We have 100 Dell Latitude E6430 laptops which will be used on a summer camps for kids. We would like to install some software on them, and then easily create an image so that we can roll back to a clean laptop with all the installed software in place. As the laptops will only serve during 8 weeks it will be too expensive to install a commercial, paid solution. How should we address this situation in the most effective way? I guess the ideal would be to be able to create a partition with this image that could be triggered from BIOS (like Acronis), but parhaps this is only doable with a commercial solution? Or?

Free Tool: Path Explorer

An intuitive utility to help find the CSS path to UI elements on a webpage. These paths are used frequently in a variety of front-end development and QA automation tasks.

One of a set of tools we're offering as a way of saying thank you for being a part of the community.

our client inherited a Unitrends 602 unit with expired license or support etc.
they do have the root password and we are able to get in the unit and see what has been configured in the past
since this is new entity we are attempting to redo all from scratch
able to delete the current jobs and able to setup new jobs; but when we deleted the jobs and what we thought was the data; we still do not see the space become available
it is a 2TB unit with about 1.7TB of total space; in the storage section it shows that there is only 700GB available but we want to cleanup and have the full 1.7TB available for backup.
All help is greatly appreciated

Hi, I am looking for the best way to recover from a server crash.  Software to use that can get a replacement server up and running as quick as possible.  What I had in place to use did not work since the new server had a newer raid controller.

The replacement server may have an older Raid controller and different size drives (smaller or larger)

Also always looking for a better disaster recovery plan, our funds are limited so having a duplicate serer is not an option.  We do use RAID 1 on all our new servers.

Thank you in advance for your thoughts!

Hi everyone, I would appreciate any ideas and thoughts.

A single site with a single HP Proliant server, server 2012 Standard R2 is the DC providing DNS, DHCP etc.. for 30 users plus is a RDC Host for a branch office with 10 users who connect remotely to use an accounting package.

With this being the only server, what would do you think would be the best solution to get the site back up and running in the event of server hardware failure.

The single server does limit options but the clients budget does not allow for a second server.

Any suggestions on a viable plan if the server goes down.

Hyper v possibles etc...

Thanks everyone
