My client has Exchange 2003 and 2010 in co existance mode with multiple sites.
In the main site they have 2 HUBCAS servers in the CAS array(Due to some issue one HUBCAS server has been stopped from NLB) and 3 maibox servers, there are few more sites in that one site has a single server with MB/HUB/CAS role enabled on it and the 2nd site is the DR site has a single HUBCAS server with 3 mailbox server. The 3rd site doesnot have any exchange server and they are accessing mail using RPC with in the WAN. There are some international sites also connecting via RPC/HTTP which has Exchange 2003 server also.
Considering all these servers are in a different subnet, so they are using firewall in between with all the necessary ports opened between point to point. In the main site the Domain controllers resides in another subnet(Not in the same exchange servers subnet).
As one HUBCAS server has been stopped from NLB assuming all the users connects to the CAS ARRAY where as it has only one HUBCAS server now on it. The second server is just a HUB Transport server now. The total mailbox users are around 5000 in the Exchange organization.
The HUBCAS one is the server, has conector for Exchange 2003 also for all the sites. they have Exchange 2003 BE servers in 4 sites as well as with 2 frontend servers.
Issue1: Users from the remote sites (other than main office) are always feeling delay in mail submission or delivery(They connect via RPC/HTTP)
Issue2: The Exchange management console is very slow on searching mailbox or any activities in the EMC.
We are assuming, increasing the number of HUB and CAS servers in the main office may help in the mail submission and get rid of EMC slowness!

Hi Arul Nathan,
This is a training and certification forum. As your question relates to neither of these, I will move it to a more appropriate forum.<o:p></o:p>
