  • Exchange Installation on Multiple DC setup

    In our setup we have Four DC in different location and 4 exchange server in the respective locations, now we are creating a replica server for every mail server in one common location and at the time of installation we are selecting the respective DC for the respective servers but when we look at the directory services of the servers in the exchange server system manager they reside in the common DC only.Is there any way to clear this problem?

    You may want to look at using a period at some point in your question... it took me three goes to understand it.
    Oh and some version information would be helpful as well.

    You cannot replicate Exchange data to another server using native tools, so whatever you are planning to do regarding replication you may need to reconsider.

    Exchange selects domain controllers automatically. It needs a global catalog DC and will usually use the first one that responds.
    If it is selecting the "wrong" DC then you need to review your active directory sites and services configuration to control the domain controller use.
