2 SMTP Servers using Shared Configuration - Only 1 Sending at any one time.

Post by pdan2993 » Wed Sep 18, 2019 5:34 pm

I've followed all the instructions for installing 2 servers using shared configuration. Pointed them both to use the same UNC paths for the config and postoffice.

Both SMTP servers are sitting behind a load balancer and receiving emails simultaneously (inbound).

It would appear only one of the SMTP servers is ever sending emails (outbound) from the share at any given time.

This seems to have to do with locks that get obtained by updating files in a shared "Cluster" sub folder within the config folder.

Is this the expected behavior or should I add the "Cluster Status" registry key with a DWORD value of 0 to disable all of this cluster functionality?

I want both servers sending emails at the same time so I get a truly load balanced environment.

Any advise or suggestions would be much appreciated.

Hi,

Standard edition does not support clustering. You need Enterprise versions.

I'm not clustering, I'm using a shared configuration.

But I've since figured it out. Both servers do send in increments of their outgoing threads settings.

I do appreciate the reply though. It just wasn't an answer to the question being asked.
