Microsoft Exchange Conferencing Server Service Pack 1 has a built-in failover mechanism that is separate from MSCS. The mechanism permits you to install and to define a backup conferencing server. If the active host server fails, a polling mechanism alerts the backup server and it assumes the role of the active host server.
