Exchange Server 2016 DAG Mail flow... RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have an Exchange 2016 DAG environment with two mailbox servers (active 192.168.1.x / passive 192.168.3.x).  We having issues with mail flow. Sent 3 test messages with three different results:

    First email was transferred to the passive server, then transferred back to the active server then to our smarthost.
    Second email was sent directly to our smarthost from the active server.
    Third email was transferred to our passive server then to our smarthost

    Trying to figure out which part of this test is normal...
