Multiple Smart hosts

Post by Derek La » Sat, 22 May 2004 17:04:21


Hi,

We currently have two ADSL internet lines (diff ISPs) on
one router. Can we configure multiple smarthosts on the
Exchange 2000 server? What we are trying to acheive here
is, when one internet line is down we still can send e-
mails out via another smarthost which is tied down to the
other internet line.

What about configuring mulitple virtual servers for the
same domain name? Is it possible? Please advice. Thank
you.

Derek

Hi Derek,

You can simply add the other Smart Host into the connector, just separate
them by a ;.

Hope this helps,

Test the following, you're results could vary depening on your enviornment.
Create a single SMTP connector and add your bridgehead. On the general tab
put two smarhost entries enclosed in square brackets and separated by
semicolons. Your other option would be to create two smtp connectors with
the same address space and each listing a separate smarthost. You can only
put a single smarthost entry on the smtp virtual server and I wouldn't
advise adding a second smtp virtual server, it will only complicate matters
and is not necessary for what you're trying to achieve.
