Exchange 5.5 on Windows 2000

By joepen ·
If I cluster Windows 2000 servers, will that replicate the Exchange 5.5 message store. In other words, will I have a true Exchange cluster as well as a OS cluster?

thanks ahead,

Exchange 5.5 on Windows 2000

by [_Rick_> In reply to Exchange 5.5 on Windows 2 ...

The Exchange 5.5 Stores are not replicated in a cluster, in an Exchange cluster you have one server that is active and the other which is inactive. Both servers share the same physical DRIVE ARRAY STORAGE. So if one server goes offline then the other server will take over using the same physical location.

To replicate the data store to another location you will need to use a 3rd party product such as Legato Mirroring Extensions for MSCS.
