Recovery Virtual server....
I want to create a virtual test lab/recovery environment for my domain.
has anyone else done this in the past?
i am think of creating this on a segmented network with exact replicas
of my DC and exchange server. although i have a question about
recovering databases to this test environment, would i basically need
to install my backup software on a machine in the test lab and restore
im a little confused on what the best way to do this would be.
Yes on the backup software. The problem might be connecting it to your tape
library. Make sure that the network is completely...Exchange 2003 Reaches 16GB Limit
My Exchange 2003 standard edition complains of reaching
16GB even though the mailbox store shows a combined size
of about 2GB. Priv1.edb is reading 15.8GB. What could be
the cause of this. This server is only handling 50 users
and is 2 months old. The largest mailbox is about 107MB.
First, it's the _combined_ size of priv1.edb and priv1.stm that is
limited to 16GB in the Std Edition.
You could start by reading MSKB article 828070 which will show you how
to _temporarily_ increase the permitted DB size so that you can delete

I am trying to route outbound SMTP mail to a child and parent domain using two seperate smart hosts. I do not want to use DNS to resolve these two address. Can this be accomplished using the address space, routing, or connection tabs of the IMS?

I recently came to know something unsettling. Our internal servers can send

any way this is possible and how to fix it, please let me know.

My exchange 2003 has been working until 1/25/2005 when it suddenly began to
queue up email with the information that 'The remote server did not respond
to a connection attempt.' I've reviewed my settings (which haven't changed)
and checked to see if I have been put on a spam list (not). Any help in this
would be appreciated. Thanks.
FYI: It was also on this day that Active Sync began to fail with a 3005
error. OMA and OWA as well as RPC over HTTP continue to work. Hope this
additional info helps.

I'd like to configure a backup, remote SMTP server that would queue data

server doesn't have Exchange installed but does have IIS 6. I understand
how to do this by configuring the DNS MX records but I don't know where to
start in configuring IIS SMTP to do this. Do I need to do anything on the

for this topic? Also once I've done this, what's the best way to test it?
Thanks in advance for any ideas

you can't remove them (you can hide them if you like9. Also they do not

is it bad practice to have your dc as a file server as well. 100 people or
less. One dc is Exchange and the other is the file server. Just wondering

any thoughts appreciated.
Not necessarily. This is common for branch offices to use the DC as the
