    Hi Paul,

    I was really impressed from your blogs. I need advise on following scenario.

    We have 2 Sites in AD.

    Site 1.


    Both mailbox servers are in DAG with 10 databases.

    Now we have another site with 400 users where we are going to install Exchange mailbox/CAS/Hub server.

    The Mailbox serve is Mail03 & contain 2 database of that particular site.

    Both the sites are connected with 2MBPS Line.

    My Requirement is:
    1. We would like to keep one database copy (Management users) of site01 into Site2 incase of Failure
    2. The database copy of site2 would like to get copy in Site 1 for High Availability.


    I have installed DAG1 with FSW in first site on File server.

    Incase of failure of server in site2, does people can access the database from Site1?

    Incase of Failure of 2 servers in site, does management users can access mail from Site2.

    Incas of Failure of Site link between 2 offices, Irrespective sites users can access their mailboxes.

    Kindly advise.
