Replication Host Names

In Exchange 2007 Service Pack 1, a new feature was introduced that allowed additional redundant networks to be added to a CCR environment for the purposes of log shipping and database seeding. With specific networks dedicated to log shipping and database seeding, the remaining network is dedicated to its task of servicing client communications. Such a configuration avoids situations where the network that is servicing client communications also has to process a large number of transaction logs.

Replication Host Names are an Exchange 2007 SP1 feature that I don’t think is used very often or that well known. This is a great article on setting it up from both a Windows 2003 and 2008 perspective.

Hi there. My name is Tom Pacyk and this is my small home on the web. I love the intersection of design, technology, and communication, which is a combination that led me to a career in sales and marketing roles at places like Zoom and ServiceNow. They're a bit old now, but I also had the opportunity to publish a couple of books along the way.

Portland, Oregon is home for me, my wife Beth, and our three kids, but I'm actually a Midwestern transplant—I grew up in the Chicago suburbs and went to school at Purdue and Illinois. When I find some free time I'm probably going to concerts, rooting for the Portland Timbers, or working on my Sunshine Burn Photography project.
