RE: Configure Exchange 5.5 as front end server

If it makes it easier, 5.5 OWA can and does work with Exchange 200x on the
back end.  Exchange 2000 OWA does NOT work with Exchange 5.5 mailboxes if it
helps (different protocol).
 
Strange you'd have ISA on the same machine however.  Hope that doesn't cause
any issues down the road. :)

Hi Rajnish,
 
This is what I know.
I'm not quite sure about a a E2K server being backend of a E5.5 OWA server.
But, you could accomplish the same with E5.5 only.
Your mail didn't specify some details, but I assume when you say Site, you
didn't mean E5.5 sites but two different remote locations.
If so, I assume you have only one E5.5 site.
If this is true, you just have to add a new E5.5 server to that site. This
server automatically will receive a copy of the existing directory of that
site.
Remember that E5.5 don´t work with Active Directory and it has its own
directory.
Once you added the new E5.5 to that site, your existing OWA server will be
front end server of the newly-added E5.5 server.
That's why OWA 5.5 queries E5.5 directory to find out which server on the
site contains the requested mailbox contents.
Since your newly-added server will be part of that directory, this will
work.
 
Except for better opinion,
 
Daniel

Dear Friends,

 

I have a scenario for you.

 

I have 2 site named Site A and Site B

 

On Site A I have the following servers:-

 

Srv1 --> Having ISA, Exchange 5.5 (Mailbox & OWA, mainly used as SMTP), IIS,
acting as domain controller

Srv2 --> Having Domain controller (Master)

Srv4 --> Having windows 2000 and Exchange 5.5 IMC (All in coming mails &
Archiving)

 

Site B:-

 

Srv5 --> Windows 2000 Replica Domain controller for site A, Exchange 5.5
server- member of same site as of Site A.

 

Solution required:-

We need to install a new Server on Site A which will be exchange 2000
server. This server has to be a member server to existing domain and will
maintain user's mailbox but has to act as a backend server for Srv1 in Site
A

 

If I use Microsoft Swing method to move the mailboxes. What will be the
effect on existing exchange servers? Will Srv1 act as a front end server? If
not, how can I configure the existing exchange 5.5 to act as a front end
server for the newly installed exchange 2000 server?

 

 

Regards,

Rajnish Malik
