Since there is only 1000 Mailboxes in the Organization, new Back end
server should be a well versed solution.


I will recommend you to distribute the mailboxes, so everything should
go ok.

No cons really; this is the correct step. The only con is probably to
considering migrating to 07 which will give you a that significant IO
reduction via incremental memory.

Subject: [ExchangeList] Adding Additional Exchange Backend Server

Hi All:

The Current Exchange Setup is as follows:


# Frontend - Backend Setup

# 1 Frontend  Server (with RPC over HTTPs proxy) + 1 Backend Server
(1000 mailboxes) + 1 Domain Controller

# Windows 2003 Enterprise Server (SP2) + Exchange 2003 Enterprise Server


We are planning to add an additional backend server with higher disk and
I/O capacity and move the mailboxes on the new server.


The steps are broadly outlined as below:


1. Additional Server joining the Existing windows domain
2. Installing Exchange server joining the Existing Exchange
3. Creating Multiple Mailbox Stores to distribute Mailboxes between
4. Moving mailboxes to a New Exchange Server


Can somebody please guide me through the pros/cons of this setup or
pre-defined checklist that one needs to take care of in this kind of


Thanks & Regards
