CAS Array – Right Understanding


Thank you Brian Day for some common misunderstood issues (more links below) and the summary is here:

  • CAS array object does not load balance the traffic (but it is used for it)
  • CAS array object should be configured even if you only have one CAS or a single multi-role server
  • CAS array object should not be configured or changed after creating Exchange Server 2010 mailbox databases and moving mailboxes into the databases
  • CAS array object Name is only formal name (arbitrary value)
  • CAS array object does not service OWA, ECP, EWS, Autodiscover, IMAP, SMTP, or POP
  • CAS array object FQDN should not be the same FQDN used for other services such as OWA, ECP, EWS, EAS, Autodiscover, or the Outlook Anywhere
  • CAS array object should not be resolvable via DNS by external clients
  • CAS array object does not need to be part of the SSL certificate
