Where to install SME when exchange roles are devided

We have a customer who wants us to deploy SME backup. But the Exchange environment is separated on 3 servers. So we are unsure where we need to install what SW.

The environment is as follows.

3 Exchange servers in Hyper-V,

  • Server1 Clint access server
  • Server2 Pub transport server
  • Server3 DB server

Where do we install SME sw? On all servers or only on the DB server?

Do all exchange servers need snapdrive?

Hi Geir,

You install SME on mailbox servers only.

SnapDrive is required only on mailbox servers too, unless you want to designate a different server (with eseutil installed on it) as a verification host - in this case you need SnapDrive on this box as well.

Regards,

Radek
