  • First Exchange Server 2003 in Child Dom

    My situation is a bit similar to linnie94 but I do not have any exchange server 2003 installed in my 1 forest 1 dom and multi child doms network.

    This is my first experience installing Exchange in a 1 forest 1 dom and multi child dom network. Hope someone will help me out.

    I have a Windows 2003 server environment in native mode.
    Already ran forestprep + domainprep on the forest and domainprep on the child dom.

    I want to install the first exchange server 2003 in one of my child dom.

    Do I need to install an Exchange System Manager or which components in the root dom ?
    Then delegate the full exchange rights to the child dom administrator ?
    After which install the Exchange Server in the child dom.

    Then what about recipient policy, how to set it to @child dom rather then @root dom ?

    Can someone guide me with detail steps on performing this tasks ?
    Hope I am making sense of my situation.

    Thanks.

    1. You need to install the Exchange System Manager in any place that want to manage the exchange from only (like AD servers.
    2. You can delegate permissions if you want / need to to.
    3. The reicpient policy is not neccearily rely on the forest / domain name.
    If you organization is test.com, the forest is nontest.com and the domain is support.nontest.com (or any other names) you just need to configure the recipient policy according to your MX record at the ISP:

      Sorry but I am still confuse on installing an exchange server in a forest child
      dom which orginally do not have any Exchange server at all.

      Lets say, my forest is forest.com, my child dom is child.forest.com.

      I tried installing the Exchange Server in my child dom server2.child.forest.com,
      but got an error. My server is a Windows 2003 member server and logged in
      the 'child' dom. But when I logged in the 'forest' dom on the server2, I can continue installing Exchange server.
      Can I install Exchange server on the server2, login to 'child' dom ?

      Thanks.

        It is very simple:
        Because part of the Exchange installation is extending the AD Schema - you must have ENT Admin permissions:

          You need to prep the forest and the parent domain.
          Then prep the child domain.

          I would probably suggest that after running the prep that you install the Exchange management tools on to a server in the parent domain, so that you can give permissions to the Exchange org to the child domain account. Remember that you can only have one Exchange org per forest, so some things have to be done at a forest or parent level.
