  • Exchange 2k3 Management Tools on 2K8?

    Afternoon, I currently have a windows 2003 domain with exchange 2003, I have now started to look at Windows 2008 and have configured a domain controller, on my other domain controllers i have installed the Exchange Maangement tools to allow me to access the features from within AD.

    I tried to do the same with windows 2008 but it errored out, i tried installing the exchange 2007 admin tools from a reccomendation from another forum and that didnt work either.

    Is it possible to administer Exchange through AD on a 2008 machine? Will i also have this problem when upgrading my management box from XP to Vista?

    thanks in advance

    Vista has management tools a la :
    http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/d...displaylang=en

    I don't believe there is a version for 2008.

    EDIT:
    A search found this on Experts Exchange - credit to "dstgroup"
    Never tried it and it is likely this is completely unsupported.

    Code:
    I did the following and it is working for me:
    
    Copy the following files from the Exchange 2003 computer bin directory to the system32 directory on the Server 2008 computer:
    address.dll
    escprint.dll
    exchmem.dll
    glblname.dll
    maildsmx.dll
    pttrace.dll
    
    Copy the following files from Exchange 2003 computer system32 directory to the system32 directory on the Server 2008 computer:
    netui0.dll
    netui1.dll
    netui2.dll
    
    Type the following at an ELEVATED command prompt:
    regsvr32 \windows\system32\maildsmx.dll
    
    This procedure will need to be modified if used on a 64 bit version of windows.

      Hi

      Have anyone tried this on X64 OS?
      Have anyone tried the Vista management tool on server 2008 and see if it works?
