Planning and deploying Exchange Server 2016 Mailbox services
You are a messaging engineer for the A. Datum Corporation, an enterprise-level engineering and manufacturing company. The organization is based in London, England, but is rapidly expanding the London location and adding other international locations. A. Datum is planning to implement Exchange Server 2016 to replace its current messaging system, Exchange Server 2010.
A. Datum has identified the following requirements for the Exchange Server 2016 deployment:
• All users must be provided with a minimum of 2-gigabyte (GB) mailboxes. Some users might require additional mailbox storage, so the mailbox size limits will be defined as 2 GB, 5 GB, and 25 GB.
• All users must be able to access their mailboxes from the internal network and externally using web browsers, various mobile devices, and the full Outlook 2013 and Outlook 2016 clients.
• Exchange services must be highly available. The deployment must ensure that all Exchange services will not be disrupted by any single component failure.
The Exchange architecture must span two sites, London and Berlin, in an Active/Passive configuration, and it will need to support 3,200 user mailboxes. These mailboxes are classified into three different usage profiles:
• 400 Tier-1, power users. These users tend to have larger mailbox requirements, and send and receive more mail daily than users in the other usage profiles. Their mailbox limits are 25 GB.
• 2400 Tier-2, normal users. This usage profile makes up the majority of the mailbox footprint. This profile designates a typical user in the environment. Their mailbox limits are set to 5 GB.
• 400 Tier-3, light users. These users have a smaller mailbox footprint, on average. Their daily use of the Exchange mail system is also less than the average. Their mailboxes are limited to 2 GB.
You need to review the current messaging infrastructure and network topology with the goal of planning the deployment and configuration of email services. You need to make proposals about how best to address the needs of the organization. Then, you need to implement mailbox databases and public folders.
After you complete this lab, you will be able to:
• Plan for virtualization.
• Plan for mailbox databases.
• Implement mailbox databases.
• Plan and implement public folders.
