Need Help with Exchange 2007 SP1 - 7.Jul.2010 10:22:08 PM

Hi all,

I would like to check if the following new setup is possible;

I have 2 servers running with roles "all in one" each (Hub,CAS & Mailbox), I suppose only SCC requires Shared Storage, but if I would like to configure CCR between these 2 servers connecting to a single shared storage where I keep my database,mailboxes and etc, is that possible?

My aim is to provide HA between the 2 exchange servers and provide a single shared storage for data backup as well as storage groups or exchange related files.

HA

Exchange Server 1 -------- Exchange Server 2

| |
| |

Share Storage Array


Any advise will be very much appreciated.

Thanks,

SCC is shared storage.
CCR is separate storage.

you really do not want to share the storage

the CCR cluster with individual storage is prefered and gives you a higher level fo HA

also you can run a CCR clsuter across datacenters giving you even more HA

I would recommend looking at Exchange 2010 DAG instead of CCR - much simpler - better features suc as active/active as opposed to active/passive which is all a CCR can provide

Hi all, thanks for the reverts;

Just one more quick question, I understand from my peers is that its not possible to configure CCR between just 2 exchange servers, you will need at least 3;

Basically, you have to separate the hub transport server role away from the 2 servers holding CAS and Mailbox roles to perform CCR, is this right?

My actual requirement was to setup all the roles hub, CAS and Mailbox on just 2 servers, can CCR still be viable?

Appreciate any prompt response...thanks

nope
CCR requires that the mailbox be installed alone

you would have a hub/cas on others servers (2 servers for mailbox cluster and 2 servers for hub/cas to get you redundancy)

Exchange 2010 DAG will allow you to consolidate the roles and still support the cluster (2 servers)
