Maintaining Records About Your Server Clusters

 

Topic Last Modified: 2005-04-27

Make sure to maintain records of the configuration information about your Exchange 2003 clusters. You might need this information to recover your Exchange organization from a major disaster. For example, if all the servers in a cluster are damaged, you might have to completely rebuild the cluster. If you do not have full computer backup sets or Windows backup sets for each node, a record of configuration information for the cluster may help you recover the cluster.

To help you recover an Exchange 2003 cluster, maintain records of the following information about the cluster.
