If a second Exchange Server 2000 is brought into a single organization, what is the best way to deploy it in order...
to offer fault tolerance for a company's mail system? Independent Exchange 2000 servers don't provide fault tolerance by themselves. Rather, you need to build fault tolerance into your design. This involves the use of multiple processors, error-correcting memory, RAID storage, redundant power supplies, etc. What you really want to look into is clustering Exchange. Cluster provides high-availability, and you'll build your cluster with fault-tolerance in mind. Have a look at Deploying Microsoft Exchange 2000 Server clusters for details on deploying Exchange 2000 clusters.
