Hello, and thank you in advance for any input you may have on this.

We installed Exchange 2007 on what are going to be our CAS servers eventually, though they currently have all roles (Hub, CAS and Mailbox). No problems there, everything went fine. This is on Dell servers with Windows Server 2008 64 bit installed as the OS.

We want to install CCR as well on our servers that will, of course, only be Mailbox servers, an Active and a Passive. The install on the Active went well and all the prereq stuff went ok and it installed. We went to install the passive node and got some issues related to the 2003 policies that we currently have. We resolved those by deleting them, running the passive node install and then putting them back in.

When we open the Exchange Console on the CCR nodes, there is no mention of the server being seen as a CCR node, it is not an Exchange mailbox server at all. It seems to be that only the Management Console installed properly. However, the cluster is still being seen in the Server Configuration (role Provisioned) but that is all that is available. I am not too sure what went wrong or where to look to see what can be done to remediate it.

In the Cluster Administration portion, the resource comes online and is all happy, but we do not see the additional resources we would expect to see "Network Name" is there but the rest (IP Address, Exchange Information Store Instance, Exchange System Attendant Instance and First Storage Group/Mailbox Database) are not.

When we try to run the command in Exchange shell of get-clusteredmailboxserverstatus -identity mailboxserver, we get an error stating that it cannot query one of our domain controllers properly. So something went horribly wrong with the install but we did not see where it all fell apart with the CCR install and have no idea where to go from here.

Again, if there are any ideas, thought, *prayers*, I am all for hearing what you have.

Thank you and hope to hear from you soon.

I had to end up and call MS. There was a replication issue that we had not given enough time to resolve itself. We got it working with them. It was not pretty but it is working now. I had followed the tutorial and that is what got me that far. Thanks for the input.
