Hello all,

I was just posed a question for a client that we have.  Their current set up is an office in Portland ME and and office in Atlanta GA.  Each office has a domain controller (same AD Site) and each has a separate exchange server for each site.  The client wants to upgrade to Ex. 2007 (this is ok), the issue is they would like to have a single store (100+ users) with site to site replication.  I frown on this a little and would prefer to set up one server, 2 stores and use Outlook Anywhere.  I am looking to build a case to support this set up and would like to have some opinions on this either way.  

But if their PTP T1 connection will support site to site replication for their exchange environment then so be it.  Everythign I have read would lead me to set up one server, migrate the current stores and enable outlook anywhere. 

thank you.

Preston,

You could convince the customer with this, if he has one mailstore and it crashes no one can access their mailbox. If you split the databases and storagegroups you will have less change this happens.

What you want to do is not possible with Exchange.

You cannot have the data in two locations with both locations accessing the data simultaneously in both locations.

While there are options to have the data in two locations, only one set of data is active - the other is passive and only comes active if the primary fails.

I don't know where the client has got "site to site" replication from - perhaps from the old SRS feature which was part of the integration for Exchange 5.5 and Exchange 200x servers.

Simon.
