    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.

    Hi Paul,
    Still thanks for your article about public folder permissions in exchange 2007. Now I like to set up a exchange 2013 machine. I wonder if it is possible you renew your article and tell the world how to set permissions to (all or cascading) public folders in exchange 2013.

    Keep up the good work
    Thanks Kim
