Microsoft Exchange 2016
Microsoft Exchange 2016 has reduced the number of server roles to two: the Mailbox and Edge Transport server roles. The Mailbox server in Exchange 2016 includes all of the server components from the Exchange 2013 Mailbox and Client Access server roles: The Client Access services provide authentication, limited redirection, and proxy services and offer all the usual client access protocols: HTTP, POP and IMAP, and SMTP. Mailbox services include all the traditional server components found in the Exchange 2013 Mailbox server role: the backend client access protocols, Transport service, Mailbox databases, and Unified Messaging.
The purpose of this deployment guide is to provide a step-by-step process for deploying A10 Thunder ADC as a load balancer in a Microsoft Exchange 2016 server deployment using AppCentric Templates (ACT) along with the equivalent CLI-based configuration. The deployment is based on a Single VIP (Virtual IP Address) configuration with multiple services.
