Microsoft scores leader from Gartner – 6th year in a row!

DSCP on Exchange 2010 Replication?

A friend asked me if it was possible to specify DSCP values for Exchange 2010 replication. After doing some trial and error and research, it seems like it’s possible. By segregating MAPI and Replication to different NICs, and using Local Policy, you can set port 64327 (TCP, Default Exchange 2010 Replication Port) to use a DSCP value. I’ll test this later in my lab….
