Procedure to build DR site for Exchange 2003 (including AD) RRS feed

  • 問題

  • I couldn't find the detail description of the procedure to build a redundancy exchange 2003 server (including AD) in DR site.
    What i could find most is the procedure to setup Clustering Server (Exchange 2003), is that the only way if I want to build a exchange server in DR site? Or there are any other ways to setup this without using clustering?

    Appreciate your help on this case.

    Exchange 2003 does not provide any build-in functions for your redundancy exchange server in my DR site. Would you consider upgrade to Exchange 2007? It can fullfill your require. Or it is necessary using third-party software for redundancy exchange server in my DR site. e.g. HP OVSM, Wansync etc......

    Dear customer:

     

    In Exchange server 2003, you are unable to setup redundancy Exchange server except for Exchange cluster.

     

    In addition, Microsoft doesn’t support that setup another Exchange Server 2003 in DR site and do the replication between your office Exchange server and the one in DR site. This just make the issue more complexity instead of simplification.

     

    You should consider Chau’s suggestion, advice your boss to migrate your Exchange server 2003 to Exchange 2007.

     

    For more information about  High Availability in Exchange server 2007, please refer to the following article:

    You can find a quick reference at: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb125070.aspx

     

    However, in terms of detail design and implementation, it depends on your existing network infrastructure, software, hardware, connectivity constraints, etc.

  • Hi Raymond, thanks for your documentation link related to disaster recovery of exchange server procedure. But I need a redundancy exchange server in my DR site which means if my exchange server is down, then it will failover to another exchange server in my DR site manually or automatically within max half an hour down time.

  • Upgrade to Exchange 2007 may need some more investigation and oberservation....etc
    How if I just setup another Exchange Server 2003 in DR site and do the replication between my office exchange server and the one in DR site (e.g. AD information, LDAP address book, transaction logs (updated))?
     
    I think those third party software like HP OVSM, Wansync....only in site to site level, but I first need to do in server to server level.
