Multiple Site Installation - 17.Aug.2004 11:19:00 AM

I need ti install Exchange 2003 at a user with 5 sites. Current email Gordano NT Mail, linked to Outlook. Because of their fears about connection reliability (despite a frame relay and ADSL) they want a server in Leeds and one in Manchester. I believe it is not recommended to cluster across multiple sites, so is it better to have the 2 servers in 1 routing group which will then have separate users, and in the event of 1 server going down, how much is involved to transfer its accounts to the other server? Does anyone have experience of the traffic between routing group servers?

The placement of Routing Groups is down to environment complexity as much as bandwidth, but it sounds like you might as well just have the one RG.

If you lose one server you would have quite a bit of work involved in reconfiguring the clients and connectivity to the new system. It would take you longer to reconfigure than it would to build a new server with dial-tone databases and then RSG the mail back into the stores.
