Exchange 2010 load balancing

Snapt provides an automatic wizard for configuration load balancers for Exchange 2010, 2013 and 2016. To use the wizard navigate to the Balancer -> Create a load balancer menu item and then choose Exchange.


Creating Your Group

Once you select the Exchange Wizard you will be taken to a page where you must complete the following tasks:

  1. Specify an IP address to listen on
  2. Set a name for your group (for reporting, alerts, etc)
  3. Add the Exchange servers IP addresses.

This can be seen below. It is important to specify an IP and not use Any as the port 25 bind can clash with our local email daemon.


Microsoft Exchange 2010 Requirements

Exchange 2010 requires you to specify static ports for the load balancer to use. Snapt defaults to using the range 60000 to 60002. To set these static ports please follow this Technet Guide. This is only required for Exchange 2010, NOT 2013 or 2016.

If you are a new Snapt user, feel free to get a trial of the product!
