Install Exchange 2010 to remote site only for online archive RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello all,

    Here is my questions.

    I have two Exchange 2010 servers (one CAS and HUB, one MAILBOX) in remote site(Data Center). (site to site link speed 20G)

    Users are using remote CAS for access their mailbox.

    I am going to build additional Exchange 2010 just for online archive. (Just mailbox role)

    but there is error message during install 

    Warning:
    Setup did not detect an existing Hub Transport server role installed in Active Directory site 'site-name'. Mail cannot be sent or received from this mailbox server until a Hub Transport role is installed.

    Warning:
    Setup didn't detect an existing Client Access server role installed in Active Directory site 'site-name'. Outlook Web App and Exchange ActiveSync mobile phone access won't be available until a Client Access role is installed.

    Do I have to build CAS and HUB just for online archive?

    Also If I install 3 roles to one server, user's still can use remote CAS for access their inbox or use local CAS for access exchange?

  • this is by design

    in each site which has needs to have mailbox server must need to have a HUB and CAS server.

    You can have all the three server HUB and CAS but don't use them and don't publish the CAS.

    I'd say use them as a backup in case of your primary server goes down?

    why do you want to have Archive on the off-site location ?

    You can think about setting up a DAG / Stretched DAG utilizing your remote site.
