SCR CAS HT servers

S

Sawyer

Hello

In AD siteA i will install a CAS+HT and a SCR source all running on windows

2008

In AD siteB I will install a SCR target, and replicate log files from the

SCR source to the target.

I know that each AD site that has a milbox server role installed also

requires a HT and CAS server. My question is what role do the CAS and HT

servers play that are located in AD siteB, if i havent failed mailboxes over

and seeded the database to the mailbox server in AD siteB?

Do the servers just sit there doing nothing until i have to fail over?

Many thanks

A CAS and HT server is not strictly required in siteB unless you want to

make the target server an active mailbox server at some point, say for

disaster recovery. If you build them before a disaster, yes, they'll just

sit there and do nothing unless you have configured web access, SMTP

routing, or anything else to use them.

Ok so i guess the smart thing to do in this situation would be to

preconfigure the CAS and HT server in AD site B for EWS, and any send and

receive connectors that are needed to route email, set them to disabled

until a fallow occurs, then change the DNS record to point to the CAS server

in AD siteB. Does this sound correct?

I don't know that it matters.
