Planning the Exchange Topology Deployment

These questions are based on 70-238 – Pro: Deploying Messaging Solutions With Microsoft Exchange Server 2007.


Objective: Planning the Exchange Topology Deployment
Sub-Objective: Plan the server role deployment


Single Answer, Multiple Choice


You are a messaging professional for Interscape Corporation, which is a small-sized company providing human resource services to other companies. Your company does not have a messaging system. Management wants to implement an Exchange 2007 messaging system. There is only one server named ICa-PC available to deploy Exchange 2007 server roles.


You need to design an Exchange organization to meet the following requirements:



  • Allow employees to access their mailboxes from outside the office network.
  • Secure the Exchange organization against spam messages.

  What should be your recommendation?



  1. Perform typical installation of Exchange Server 2007 on ICa-PC.
  2. Deploy the Edge Transport server role and the Mailbox server role on ICa-PC.
  3. Deploy the Hub Transport server role and the Mailbox server role on ICa-PC.
  4. Deploy the Hub Transport server role and the Client Access server role on ICa-PC.

Answer:
A. Perform typical installation of Exchange Server 2007 on ICa-PC.


Tutorial:
You should perform a typical installation of Exchange Server 2007on the ICa-PC server to achieve the objective. In this scenario, you have only the ICa-PC server available to deploy the Exchange Server 2007 roles. A typical installation of Exchange Server 2007 will install the Client Access server role, the Hub Transport server role and the Mailbox server role on the ICa-PC server. To ensure e-mail messages flow in your Exchange organization, you must install the Mailbox server role and the Hub Transport server role in each Active Directory site. You require a Client Access server role to provide remote access to employees accessing their Exchange mailboxes from outside the office network. Users using non-MAPI clients gain access to their mailboxes on an Exchange Server 2007 computer through Client Access server. If users access their mailbox by using any client other than Microsoft Outlook, it is necessary to install a Client Access server. You can also enable the anti-spam agents on the Hub Transport server to ensure that your Exchange organization is secured against spam messages.


Deploying an Edge Transport server role and the Mailbox server role on the ICa-PC server will not help you achieve the objective in this scenario. The Edge Transport server is installed in the perimeter network outside the Active Directory domain. This server role provides protection against spam and viruses, and relays messages to and from the Internet. However, as mentioned in the scenario, you have only one server available to deploy Exchange Server 2007 roles, and an Edge Transport server role cannot be deployed on a computer that hosts any other server roles. Therefore, you should perform a typical installation of Exchange Server 2007 and then enable anti-spam agents on the Hub Transport server role to protect your Exchange organization against spam and viruses.


Deploying a Hub Transport server role and a Client Access server role on the ICa-PC server will not help you achieve the objective in this scenario. In this scenario, you do not have a messaging system or an Exchange server in your organization. You must install both the Mailbox server role and the Hub Transport server role in each Active Directory service site to ensure e-mail messages flow in your Exchange organization. Therefore, you should perform a typical installation of Exchange Server 2007 and then enable anti-spam agents on the Hub Transport server role to protect your Exchange organization against spam and viruses.


Deploying a Hub Transport server role and a Mailbox server role on the ICa-PC server will not help you achieve the objective in this scenario. In this scenario, you must ensure that employees have remote access to their Exchange mailboxes; therefore, you must install a Client Access server besides the Mailbox server role and the Hub Transport server role.
