At Part 3, We configured OWA service and SSL certificate. This part, we will configure our 2 Hub Transport servers, EXGW01 and EXGW02. I’ll use Citrix Netscaler again to make a load balance between them.
Now on EXGW01, open Exchange Management Shell and execute;
Do same thing on EXGW02:
Use Get-ReceiveConnector to see recently added connectors:
Enable receive connectors to get mail from external mail address:
Disable default receive connectors:
Now add new receive connectors for EXGW01 and EXGW02:
Configure load balancing on Citrix Netscaler. First add service definition as TCP – 25 for EXGW01.
Add same service definition for EXGW02 and Create a Virtual Server:
Choose Least Connection as LB Method:
Now telnet your NLB ip and you should see your FQDN:
Ok, now lets create a send connector to send mails to external address:
Create a SSL request for EXGW01:
Buy your commercial certificate and save certificate code to C:\cert.txt.
Assign SMTP services to certificate. Don’t forget to use your own Thumbprint.
We will export our certificate and import it to second Hub Transport server, EXGW02.
Now, transfer your pfx file to EXGW02 and import it:
Enable SMTP service for EXGW02:
Go to Citrix Netscaler again and create a Virtual Server for SMTP.
Configure LB method as Least Connection.
Check Hosted Exchange 2010 Setup Guide Part 3 for how to import SSL Certificate to Citrix:
Bind SSL certificate to virtual server.
Also you can add HTTP, 80 as another Virtual Server.
Please follow Hosted Exchange 2010 Part 3 for how to add HTTP 80 Virtual Server.
Go to EXGW01 and EXGW02, open IIS manager (inetmgr) and navigate to SSL Security for Default Web Site.
Clear “Require SSL” and click Accept from SSL settings.
Now test your Exchange Server 2010 SMTP address:
Wadaaaa again! We finished Citrix Netscaler Load Balancing for Hub Transport Servers.
