I am getting a 2003 exchange cluster ready to migrate from our current 2003 exchange server. We do have a need for NNTP and I was looking for a work around to be able to run the NNTP service. If I configured a front end server maybe? We are also looking to implement OWA, are there any gotcha's there in a cluster setup?

Thanks in advance,

Dan

With a cluster you should certainly implement an FE. Unfortunately having an FE still does not let you use NNTP on it's own. You'd still need to run another BE.
What I might suggest is that you run the Windows NNTP on its own rather than put an Exchange license on top of it for little additional value.

Mark's advice is sound (as if we didn't already know that ) any other way of trying this would undoubtedly leave you in the position of a unsupportable setup - for example I recently encountered someone that was using a clustered scenario with a FES but had attempted to place the NNTP service purely on the passive node!!!! - what a mess.

Thank you, and we will be definitely using a FE. We decided to move the NNTP site to a Web server. I also just found ou we will be implementing BlackBerry service. This should be fun.

Thanks again.
Dan
