Replacing passive node in CCR cluster RRS feed

  • Question

  • I need to replace my physical server which is the passive node in my CCR cluster. It’s on its last legs and would not be up to scratch to ever be the active node in the environment. At a high-level glance I need to figure out the exact order of what I need to do;

    Uninstall Exchange from passive node

    Remove node in Cluster management

    Swap out old server with new server; configure disks to mimic partitions on old server, etc

    Add new node to Cluster management

    Install Exchange and set up as passive cluster node role on new server

    Reseed all databases to newly-installed node.

    I am running Exchange 2007 SP3 Rollup 12. Servers are 2008 Enterprise using Failover Cluster management. Is there anything else I need to consider or add to the above steps?

    Thanks in advance.
