  • exchange 2007 server in different domain than user

    First, my apologies if there's a posting on this but i've been going nuts trying to find it.
    My question is
    I have an environment that looks like this
    1) Empty root w2k3 sp2 domain
    2) Child domain A w2k3 sp2
    3) Child domain B w2k3 sp2

    Exchange 2k7 is installed and working fine in child domain A. When I add a mailbox for a user in child domain B, they get login errors when using OWA. I did some testing and came with the following.
    1) If I run setup.com /pd, user can login.

    The question is, can I just add permissions on the IIS server to allow the user to login? I believe i need to allow "inheret" permissions in the security -> advanced tab for the user. But is this the best solution? instead of running setup.com /pd?

    Thanks in advance.

    You have to prepare every domain that will host users with mailboxes, there shouldn't be a problem doing this and messing with IIS permissions means you will be non-standard from the start.

    Have a read of the bottom of this, I almost posted it here in full but it was too big.

      Hi Andy, thanks for reply but my issue isn't about hosting mailboxes. Its about logging in from a another child domain. Child domain B has users with mailboxes in Child domain A. When they login thru OWA, the get error messages.
      setup.com /pd should be run only if child domain B will have an exchange server which is not the desired outcome.

        I don't believe so.

        Prepare the Domain
        The following sections provide the background, execution, and verification information needed to prepare the domain.

        Background
        The /PrepareAD parameter only runs the prepare domain tasks against the domain where Setup is executed. If you have multiple domains and other domains that host Exchange or mail-enabled objects, it will be necessary to run Setup /PrepareDomain against each of them.

          Yes! Preparing domain B should solve your problem.
