How to force Outlook 2010 to connect to a specific exchange server

    Question

  • I have 3 exchange servers and one of them went down. I remember configuring a file with the IP of the exchange server that went down. I want to remove the IP so I can connect to the other servers. Anyone know what the file path/name of the file I am looking for.

  • What you describe is hardly a standard practice so I have no idea what you modified.  Maybe it's the C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc\hosts file?

  • Hi Jay,

    Do you remember you edited a file from the client side or the server side? From the client side, it could be the hosts file as Ed stated. From the server side, it could be that your edited the DNS record to point to the specific server.
