Hi,

Currently our Exchange 2007 SP1 infrastructure contains:

2x mailbox servers - SCR clustered

1x CAS/Hub Transport

1x ISA 2006 for OWA access

We have recently purchased another server for a 2nd CAS/Hub Transport role,

is it difficult to setup a 2nd CAS/Hub server? Any installation guides

would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

Install it the same as the first HT you did.

Remember to configure the Send connector to allow the 2nd HT to send.

What do you plan on doing about balancing client access?

What do you plan on doing about balancing inbound SMTP from the ISA.

Why are you having two HT/CAS if you've only got one ISA? Seems a

little pointless.

Is it possible to do some kind of clustering with CAS/HT? The goal is to

have failover if one CAS/HT went down. The consultants did the install for

us so I wasn't sure how it was done.

Thanks.

Sure. NLB them.

See the articles:

http://www.google.com/search?q=CAS+NLB&sourceid=ie7&rls=com.microsoft:en-us:IE-SearchBox&ie=&oe=

There's an msexchange.org one right at the top. That's the one you'll

want to read first.

Also, you might see information about not doing NLB on the HT. That's

pre E2K7 SP1 information. You are ok post SP1.
