Default Domino Install question

Please Login to Remove!

Greetings all,
Company looking into moving to BES server. I want to run BES on second server, this would require me to install Domino on this second server. I've never setup a second Domino server. Do the two servers talk via replication? Is my current main server the first in line for all incoming emails or is the BES/Domino server the first to see incoming mail?
Any help would be appreciated..
Thanks

Please somebody correct me if i am wrong.

Do the two servers talk via replication?
-When a new mail coming to your primary lotus domino, it will be automatically replicated into your additional server. To allow this, you should do some replication first. Then the Blackberry messaging agent (which will be injected into your additional domino server during BES installation) will do some message routing to the regional blackberry portal, and then it will be forwarded to handheld using local GPRS connection.

Is my current main server the first in line for all incoming emails or is the BES/Domino server the first to see incoming mail?
-based on my explanation above, i think it should be the first to see all incoming mail.

put the two servers in the same NNN (notes named network), the mails then schould route, nevertheless make a replikation document for admin4, certlog, names and maybe a second company address book between the two servers

Good,
So the BES server is number 2 in line. And I only have to replicate to the new server, only those users who will be using blackberry units. How often do you have your servers set to replicate?
Thanks,
ML

you don't need to replicate the user mailbox to the server! the bes task picks up the mails from your first server.

So, what does the second Domino server do? How does it fit into the puzzle?
Thanks

its not recommend to install the bes on your mail server.
so you need a secound server. the bes needs to run a domino task(nbes) so you have to install a secound domino server. that easy

Ok, so server 2 (Domino/BES), holds no user .nsf mail files, correct? I install second server, and on my main server under Server/Basics tab in the admin. Under Routing Tasks, do you only select Mail Routing and no other routing then directly below under SMPT listener Task, is it enabled or disabled? As I've never added a second server, just migrated the same server documents form One physical server to the next this is new to me..
What other major points in the Server Setup document are of interest with regards to server 2??
Thanks for the replies, this is clearing up a lot confusion...

you need no smptp task, route your mails over your first domino server. just make sure as i already mentioned that they are in same nnn. make sure that the second domino server is in the local domain server group. nothing more.
