  • 3. Learning On The Job - Please Help!
    Hi, I have a Windows 2000 Server and am already using Exchange Server to successfully send / receive mails for two different existing domain names. I didn't set this up. I have now registered a third domain name and want to start sending / receiving mails for this too. I have done what I think is the easy bit (configuring Active Directory etc) but of course there must be other things I must do "in the middle" in order to get things working. I appreciate this is a huge topic but any pointers / guidance would be much appreciated. It is a bit of a minefield but I think MX Records have got something to do with it and yet I see none of these already set up within DNS for the other two domain names. Thanks in advance.
  • 4. OWA & Contacts
    I need to get a list of contacts that are in an account on the server exported to a csv (or some other importable) type of format. Is there a way to go directly from OWA to Excel, or what is the procedure for doing something like that? Thanks, BC

Added 2nd Exchange Server, Can OWA Work?

Postby NW » Tue, 22 Apr 2008 22:32:44 GMT

Added a 2nd E2003SP2 server in our organization. This is a single server
topology, er, not front end/backend though we will be migrating to that
scenario after resolving issues with a 3rd party app that uses a public
folder store on our first server.

Question is:

Currently OWA is accessed on the 1st server at, and I want to move all mailboxes to the
2nd.  Can users access OWA on the 2nd server via the first servers name?  Or
do I need to tell install certificates on the 2nd server and have everyone 
whose mailbox is on that server
to access via the new server's name?

I know I can achieve this if the first server became a front end but don't
think I can do that before migrating that previously mnetioned public store
off it....the other complication is that the 1st server was stood up as a
domain controller.

If you go to OWA on a non-FE server, and your mailbox is on a different 
server, then your browser will be redirected to OWA on the other server.  No 
problem from the LAN, since both servers are reachable by HTTP, but it 
causes problems from the Internet, since your HTTP ports will probably be 
forwarded to the older server.

3.OWA problems since adding 2nd exchange server

Running Exchange 2003 standard sp2 w/ OWA/ HTTP over RPC. Using a 
Certificate for HTTPS

I have just recently added a second Exchnage 2003 sp2 server. I have started 
to migrate uses to the new store. But OWA stopped working.

1 - I made the changes needed on the firewall, but I would of thought OWA 
would still be routed via the first server, so no changes would be needed.

2 - Do I need to do something with the HTTPS certficate?

Please Help. I am stuck here. 

4.OWA not working on new 2nd Exchange server

We have added a 2nd 2003 Exch server. Gradually moving mailboxes to new 
server. But OWA will not work on a mailbox on new server. What am I missing?
Do I use the the old url of https://server1/domain/exchange or do I use 
server2 instead. I have tried both.

5.Help: Adding 2nd Exchange Server to Exchange 2003 Setup

I currently have 1 exchange 2003 SP2 server hosting all my stores. The 
Exchange 2003 server uses a smart host for outgoing messages, and the same 
smart host server is used for all incoming messages which are then forwarded 
to the exchange server. I also have a Front Web server.
I would like to add a second Exchange server within the same site and move 2 
stores to this new server to distrubte load.
Here are my questions:
1) Could someone please point me to some good documentation that could 
assist me with this process?
2)If a user with a mailbox in server 1 sends mail to a user with a mailbox 
in server 2 how is the mail forwarded between servers? What needs to be 
configured for this to work?
3) For incoming mail, what is needed to ensure that mail is delivered to the 
correct Exchange server?
4) What changes would have to be made to the Front End server to accomodate 
the addition of the second exchange server?
many thanks for your time
