I was hoping someone could assist with an issue that our Exchange team are having, specifically with replication traffic traversing our DC to DR site.
The infrastructure consists of a Layer 3 data centre and a disaster recovery site, so essentially its a live/backup environment. Both the DC and DR site are connected with a LES using routed interfaces.
The Exchange cluster at the DC is associated with the following subnets:
MAPI - 10.1.30.X
DR site has the following subnets associated with the exhange cluster :
MAPI - 192.168.4.X
Replication - 192.168.230.X
When an attempt is made to create a database/mailbox on an exchange server at the DC and copy it using the replication subnet source: 10.1.230.X to destination subnet: 192.168.230.X, the copy process fails.
Replication traffic in general going from DC to DR or vice-versa is subject to constant problems and seems unreliable. Our exchange team have to manually copy mailboxes from one cluster to the other using Windows explorer which works fine.
The Exchange cluster at both sites reside within a VMWare ESX enclosure and connect to Cisco 6500 switches. Would the Cisco switches require a static arp entry for their respective Exchange clusters, which should be configured on each switch? If this was missing could this be the root cause of the replication problems we're experiencing? Or does this depend on whether the exchange cluster is using NLB Unicast or Multicast mode?
Hi all,I have a couple of Nexus9k switches. I need to get tcpdump from the physical interface which connected to the server. I'm looking for a specific protocol on tcpdump so that which feature should I use? I asked that because I couldn't full...

HI, In the attached diagram from cisco site if we assume R101 and R102 are two DC having a layer 2 link and both are advertising same subnet (eg. 192.168.12.0/24) to the ISP i understand by using BGP metrics we can make one DC primary and other as se...
