  • Installing Exchange Server 2003..

    Hello,

    Here is the scenario, I would like to install a second microsoft exchange sevrer just to create a test environment, where I can check my current email back-ups if they work or not and even some testing, I created this testing server in the same domain, I want to know how can I install Exchange Server 2003 on this machine without affecting my current network and even what are the pre-requisites for installing the exchange server.


    Thanks,
    Maulin

    For testing then don't install it in your live environment. I would create a couple of VM's, test restore your AD onto one of them then test restore your Exchange onto the other.
    You can then play with testing into a recovery storage group as well.
    A second Exchange in your Org will affect it, a test environment is separate .
    cheers

          Andy's link is the Microsoft documentation on using Recovery Storage Groups. If you need help regarding the other suggestions, then you should do some research and then post back here in the appropriate forums if you need help.
