Exchange 2010 SP2 MBX/HUB/CAS with DAG on 1 virtual server RRS feed

  • Question

  • LS,
    I have 2 virutal servers (VMware Vsphere 5). One in each datacenter.
    On the servers I want to install Exchange 2010 SP2 and install the following roles: MBX,HUB,CAS. The mailbox database I want to use with DAG.
    Is this supported to have those roles installed on 1 server in combination with DAG.

    Additional I don't use NLB for the CASARRAY (handeld by hardware loadbalancer) and have an other server for the MNS.

    Hope to hear.

  • Hi Peter

    Yes this is a supported configuration for Exchange 2010 SP2 - using VMware HA in combination with a DAG was not officially supported pre-SP1.

    Cheers, Steve

    in addition to Steve, you can verify your configuration and its support on Windows Server Catalog and the Support Policy Wizard,

  • Hi
        I have done same test on hyper-v. It is ok.
        I can’t find MS official document about your question.
        I also search it from vmware web site. 
        I just find that Exchange 2010 is supported Vsphere 5.
    You had better post your question to vm forum.
    They can offer professional support.

  • Hello Terence Yu,
    no update at this moment. I suggest to go ahead with E2K10 Sp2 on vSphere 5.
    When infrastructure is installed I will check the performance and failover of E2K10 en vSphere.  Also the Exchange stress test will be executed to see if iops can be delivered by the host.
