i have an issue with the balancing feature of a virtual server under settings -> virtual servers.
Whenever i create a hosting, it always defaults to Hosted Exchange Server #2. Regardless of how many hostings i create, it always allocates Exchange Server #2. When i remove Exchange Server #2 from the virtual server setup, leaving only Exchange Server #1, it creates the Hosting on Exchange Server #1. As soon as i add the Exchange Server #2 it instantly creates all hostings on Server #2 again.
I would really like to use this feature for balanced distributing of our exchange hostings across a few servers. I’ve tried everything and am out of ideas. Maybe someone can help.
PS: It works fine with distributing hosting packages on about 10 webservers (System / Web / FTP). Same setup, excluding the exchange option
Here’s my test setup
Virtual Server Name: test
Primary Distribution Group: OS
System -> 2 Webservers (not on below Exchange Servers)
Mail -> 1 Mailserver (not on below Exchange Servers, for non Exchange Accounts)
Hosted Exchange -> 2 Servers (not on above Webservers)
Hosted Organisations -> 1 Server (DC / AD of the above 2 Exchange Servers)
DNS -> 1 Server
Hosting Plan Name: Test
- Included are all the features available in the above virtual configuration setup
It sounds strange it doesn’t distribute exchange correctly.
With your configuration you would expect it to balance correctly, I will have to try and simulate this in our devlab and see why it’s balancing different for exchange servers.
One question about your setup tho: The 2 different Exchange servers they appear to be on the same Active Directory domain? (if so i am guessing they are mainly different on Databases/ DAG? )
