I guess that you mean that you have two exchange servers that are in the
same domain and not in a front-end/back-end configuration... Well, since
RPC over HTTP does require a certificate, you either need two
certificates (two different certificates) to get this to work... And you
would have to manually reconfigure the Outlook configuration to point to
another URL if you move a mailbox from one server to the other.

The reason is that the exchange server that is acting as a RPC over HTTP
server cannot forward requests to other exchange servers... 
If you are migrating to another server entirely, that is no problem...
you just move all users to the new server, and change the DNS (if pointed to the original server, you would have
to point it to the new server, and configure the new server with the
correct certificate)...

If however, you would like to use both exchange servers, and still use
RPC over HTTP, you would need to either put all RPC over HTTP users on
one server, or (is everyone needs to have RPC over HTTP access) you
would have to add a front-end server. This front-end server can act as
the rpc-proxy server and point to the right back-end server...

I hope this clarifies it a bit.

How are your two servers setup, FE and BE? 

How are you making the connected to the net, are you using a mickey
mouse Linksys router or something more stable like ISA server? 

Do you have a split DNS?

We need more input!
