Dear All,

I wants to create one Standby Exchange server, Please let me know if you have any suggestion!
Please find my current scenario.

My Environment: Exchange 2003 Enterprise Server (Master server)
             Exchange 2003 Standard server (Member server)



My company encountered a hardware failure issue a month age. It caused mail service stopped for 5 hours. I need to design a contingency plan for the mail service.



The requirement is provide users to send internal and external mail during the production Exchange server down. I haven’t enough budgets to set up Exchange clustering.



I have an idea to set up an Exchange (e.g. Mail2) as a standby server. In case of production server down, “point” all users to the standby server. Although users cannot read previous mail in production Exchange server, it allows them to send and receive new mail. If possible, move the mails back to production server when production server is up.



With my idea, I set up the Mail2 server in my domain but do not know how to “point” users to the Mail2 server.

I heard something about "Dial Tone Recovery", But not sure how to configure it.

Request you to please let me know if you have any idea, It will really helpful for me at the time DR.

Waiting for your reply.


Many thanks,
Dhaval Shah.
