  • The normal process for this is to create one Edge Transport server, configure it the way you want.  Then export the configuration using 'ExportEdgeConfig.ps1' and import it using 'ImportEdgeConfig.ps1' on the second Edge.  Once this is done, then you can create the Edge Sync agreements.

  • Hi

    If you click "Other Versions" under the title of the document you can choose Exchange 2007 there.  I think the process is very similar though.

    Cheers, Steve

  • Dear I need a little clarification, my both edge transport server are in DMZ and accessible to HUB via local network, incase internet services on Edge 1 goes down how HUB will know and start routing all emails to Edge 2? In this case Edge 1 will be remain accessible over the LAN but emails will be stuck in queue, I have checked the failover works if I take Edge 1 physically offline. Please share your thoughts
