  • exchange 2010 and AD

    I installed windows 2008 r2 with ad and dns, then I install exchange 2010 everything install as it should have, but exchange does not show up in ad, I think i might have missed a step or two, or do user have to be add separately into exchange. Can some one direct me to documentation on what i might have missed or what i need to do now to integrated exchange into AD

    thanks

    If you are looking to manage Exchange properties through Active Directory Users and Computers, you cannot do that now. Use the Exchange Management Console, which will let you e.g. create new users as well as manage the Exchange side of existing ones

      ok, so unlike exchange 2003 where you we set up a user in ad and it would create a exchange user/mailbox, now under 2010 use create the use in ad and recreate the user in 2010??

        No, not exactly
        You can create users in ADUC or in EMC, and manage the Exchange side of users in EMC only
        (of course you can also use powershell to script it all)

              Does the user appear in ADUC?
              Can you log onto a client as the user?

                Yes and Yes, there are probably a lot of pieces that i am missing.

                I also got this message: "Domain has an unknown Exchange signature" how do correct this?

                thanks

                  Domain has an unknown signature is a known bug and can be ignored.

                  The split of user and mailbox management was requested by Microsoft's major customers.
                  You need to remember that Exchange is no longer aimed at smaller sites.

                  SBS 2008 does provide the single user and mailbox creation process using the wizards. However above that most places, in Microsoft's opinion anyway, will have separate user and Exchange management personnel. It isn't going back to a single management tool method. Exchange is managed through EMC/EMS and users are managed through ADUC. Get used to it.
