    Something on the Exchange 2003 and Domain Controller issue...

    The first hit on
    install "exchange server 2003" domain controller
    A wise man once said: "Assumption is the mother of all fu*k ups".

    Any advice I give is to the best of my knowledge, there is no guarantee what so ever that it will actually work in your particular scenario. I will not accept any responsibility for unexpected consequences, after all - you are taking advice from a complete stranger over the internet. =)

      Hope I understand - "AC" - probably AD (active Directory?

      If so - Exchange must have AD in the same domain, it doesn't mean that the same machine should host Exchange & AD, but the Exchange server must connecxt AD.

        you should never run a server without an AC or at least good venilation. if the tempurature gets too high, then the system is liable to shut down due to thermal extremes... assuming that your servers have a thermal shutdown protection feature.

        if you did mean AD, then dont. its asking for problems. unless your running SBS, eX should get its own server imo. and dont virtualize it either... ;(
