Installing 2nd Exchange 2007 on the same domain - Certificates + Mail Routing + Configuring Virtual Directories on IIS CAS RRS feed

  • Question

  • We are about to install the 2nd exchange 2007 on our domain with CAS, MB & HT roles. My main area of concern lies

    1. What considerations must i take when it comes to certificates for the new CAS

    2. Mail routing between the old exchange & new exchange server

    3. configuring the cas on IIS with OWA, Outlook Anywhere, Active Sync, Autodiscover etc such that once all is working, i want to bring down the CAS on the 1st exchange 2007 and solely use the 2nd exchange.

  • 1.  It depends on the URLs it will serve.  If they're the same, then you can simply export the certificate from the existing server and import it into the new one as long as the private key is exportable.

    2.  The two servers should find out about each other and route mail with no additional configuration as long as you haven't made any configuration changes to the Default receive connector that would break it.

    3.  You can't configure IIS so that will happen.  You will need, NLB, a load balancer or the like.
