Need to patch 2 CAS Servers not HLB - 18.Oct.2012 11:12:43 AM

I had a question about running some updates on one of our 2 CAS servers, none of which are in a cluster. I recently added this new CAS to our environment (installed SAN cert, added services, verified that OWA works) and am wanting to update the older one, but I want to make sure my clients fail over to the new server. What can I do to make sure they fail over to the new server. WE are in the planning stages of getting our F5 HLB up and running, but in the meantime I would like to take one of the CAS offline and patch it.

Since they’re not LB/HLB I figure there was a RPC setting or something to point users to that new server.

Any help is appreciated.

If they were on a NLD or HLB they you would stop the services on them, but in your case, the only thing you can do is to stop the exchange services in Services.msc to prevent client connections.
