Exchange 2007 Mailbox server and Exchange 2007 CAS - Same Site

Exchange 2007 Mailbox server and Exchange 2007 CAS - Same Site

Does a Exchange 2007 CAS server have to be in the same Active Directory site
as the Exchange 2007 mailbox server? When I say site, I mean sites as
defined in Sites and Services.

I have a CAS server at our Colo site, and I haven't relocated our Exchange
2007 mailbox DR solution at the Colo yet. When I test OWA, OWA doesn't work.
My understanding is that there needs to be a mailbox server at the Colo in
addition to the CAS server. Yes?

Thanks

Ron

Yes.


That's not surprising.


No, there needs to be a CAS in the AD site with the mailbox server
role. That CAS shouldn't have an external URL so the colo CAS will
proxy (not redirect) connections.
