How to Configure Clustered Mailbox Server Ownership

 

Applies to: Exchange Server 2007 SP3, Exchange Server 2007 SP2, Exchange Server 2007 SP1, Exchange Server 2007

This topic describes how to use the Exchange Management Shell to manipulate the ownership of nodes with clustered mailbox servers. Setup for single copy clusters automatically assigns ownership of the clustered mailbox servers to both the active and the passive node. You may need to manipulate the ownership of nodes after Setup if you do not want this default, or you are reconfiguring an existing system.

To successfully perform the following procedure, the node on which the command is run must be a member of the same Microsoft Windows Server 2003 cluster of the active node.

To perform the following procedure, the account you use must be delegated the following:

  • Exchange Server Administrator role and local Administrators group for the target server

For more information about permissions, delegating roles, and the rights that are required to administer Microsoft Exchange Server 2007, see Permission Considerations

  1. Check the current pairing setting for the clustered mailbox server by running the following command:

    Get-MailboxServer -Identity:<Name> | format-list
    
    noteNote:
    Look for the value RedundantMachines in the output list.
  2. To change ownership of the clustered mailbox server, run the following command:

    Set-MailboxServer -Identity:<Name> -redundantmachines:{<ActiveNodeName>,<PassiveNodeName>}
    
  3. Verify the new ownership settings for the clustered mailbox server by running the following command:

    Get-MailboxServer -Identity:<Name> | format-list
    
    noteNote:
    Look for the value of RedundantMachines in the output list.
