Default BES with Exchange cluster

Please Login to Remove!

Hi,

We have an Exchange 2000 cluster and when the node failed over the other day the BES stopped sending mail to users Blackberries. It was only when we failed the cluster back after hours that Blackvberries started getting mail. Does BES work ok with clusters?

BES will run fine in a clustered Environment, but you cannot use Windows clusting to automatically fail over the BES, you must do that manually. I'm hoping 4.0 has better support for this.

What I do is I have a hot spare backup BES, which if our production BES goes does I only need to log on and fire up the services.

Its not automatic, but it takes a whole 30 seconds, no mail is lost to BB's during the downtime, and I can do it all remotely from my BB
