i am trying to figure out the best way to design a new exchange mail
server system. i have two offices (A and B) with about 250 users each
and a Data center (call it office C) with no users. Our internet
connection comes from the data center from which both office A & B
have 100mb links. A & B also have T1's between them.
i would like to set up one exchange server at each office (A and B)
and some sort of a bridgehead server at the data center. my goal is,
if either office A or office B goes down, they will not lose incomming
mail, it will be queued at the birghehead server until that office
comes back up.
The exchange server in C would be where all mail to company.com would
go, then it would route it to A.company.com or B.company.com,
depending where the user is, so all emplyees would have
A ----- B
my question is, how should i set up sites in this senerio. i was
thinking office A & B in one site (using RPC) and C be its own site,
acting as a bridgehead between both A & B (using wither RPC or X.400)
any ideas? i can draw you a (better) picture if that would help.
any help would be appreciated,
