My company is planning to revamp whole IT structure. I request your advice and suggestions on how to go about it.
First let me describe the present IT structure:
Forest Server with Exchange Server 2003 and services on separate servers;
domain name compnay.com
There are number of sites in that country with ADCs connected via VPN.
like dc11.company.com, dc12.company.com...........
Country B (C, D, E and so on)
New Domain Tree in an existing forest and one exchange Server;
company.co.in (co.id, co.kl and so on)
Similarly this country also has number of sites with ADCs connected via VPN / MPLS.
like dc11.company.co.in, dc12.company.co.in..........
All Exchange Servers scattered in different countries are in same Exchange organization (country A).
Now my company is planning to change IT structure as:
Esatblished new ADS in another Country say country Z as companynew.com along with new Exchange 2007 Server.
A Disaster Recover (DR) site in country Y. No more additional exchange Servers like in present scenario.
All the domains will be demoted from existing domains and promoted to new domain.
All mails from different Servers will be merged with new server.
I need advice what could be the best possible way of achieving following:
1. Creation of new site and DR site in different country including failove etc.
2. Merging e-mails from different exchange servers to one server.
4. Any other things which you want to share in this regard.
Your suggestion will be good for us in our implementation.
