    Exchange Server 2007 Multiple Mailbox Servers

    Hi there

    We are currently implementing Exchange 2007 SP2 standard onto a Server 2003 Network. We have setup four mailbox servers (2 for staff, split into a-m and n-z, 1 for heavy users and 1 for students), then one hub transport server and one client access server (CAS).

    When creating a custom MSP file for the outlook 2007 deployment it asks me to name an Exchange server, but how can we name one as we have four mailbox servers, the server will depend on who is logged onto that machine at that time. I tried naming the CAS server, no joy. Has anyone come across this?

    All input/advice is appreciated.

    Cheers, Richard

    Hi,

    Not that it answers your question, but can i ask how many users you are supporting? I would have thought one powerful server would be enough. We ahve Exchnage 2007 server serving around 2700 mailboxes (inc. staff and students) and it seems fine. It has 8Gb RAM, Dual Xeon ans SAS disks.

    I would agree with this and depending on your mailbox server specification, I would also suggest that Exchange CCR would be a better option with an active passive clustered mailbox server solution to provide reliance should one mailbox server fail.
