Configuring a Back-End Server


Topic Last Modified: 2005-05-24

Exchange configuration is stored in Active Directory® directory server on a per-forest basis, which means that all front-end and back-end servers must be in the same forest. Back-end servers can be accessed directly if required, without affecting the behavior of the front-end and back-end configuration.

If you did not configure any additional virtual servers or directories on any front-end servers, you do not need to configure any on the back-end server. If you created additional virtual servers or directories on any front-end servers, however, you must add matching virtual servers and directories on the back-end servers.

The specific back-end server configuration steps depend on whether the back-end server is hosted on a cluster. The following steps describe configuration for non-clustered back-end servers. For information about configuring clustered back-end servers, see the technical paper Deploying Microsoft Exchange 2000 Server Clusters.

When back-end servers are clustered, you cannot access the cluster HTTP virtual directory using the name of the actual physical clustered computer. You must use the virtual group name.
