Hi,

are there any disadvantages/known problems with a 2 server SCR solution

(each server will own mailbox/CAS/HUB role)?

Most designs are recommending to install HUB/CAS role on different servers

It's for a small company (about 100 users) with small budget

I also know that we have to failover the SG manually via powershell-scripts

best regards borris

Since the SCR technology doesn't use the MSCS components (WFC in 2008

obviously) you don't have to have separate boxes for CAS/HT. It would

work fine for you.

Why not just do a CCR given that you have two servers with all the

rolse installed?

Due to the completely trivial and

barely-worth-mentioning-but-I'll-do-it-anyway fact that you can't put

CAS/HT on a CCR MBX.

Just sayin'.
