  • Having problem to understand multiple domains in Exchange Server 2010

    Dear All,

    I have configured successfully Exchange 2010 on one machine with domain (xyz.com) and it is working perfectly.

    Now problem is that my company has two or more domains like (abc.com and def.com). I have installed one more win-server 2008 on another machine.now i want that my abc.com domain should be configured here but it will use all resources of exchange 2010 (which i have configured on different machine with xyz.com).

    Please help me out that what should i do?

    Are these child domains? Or completely separate forests? Assuming trust and DNS are configured correctly you can use Exchange 2010 as a resource forest by using the linked mailbox functionality.

      Thanks for quick response.

      No they are not child domains.

      I want to create new domain in existing forest (xyz.com).

      and i want that when i create new mailbox in exchange, there is a drop-down menu.there i could select the particular domain that either i want to create new mailbox with domain abc.com,xyz.com and etc.

        If they are domains in the existing forest then they will be child domains. You would need to use the linked mailbox function when creating a new mailbox and specify the account in the child domain. Ensure your email policys applies to the correct container in AD.

          You are confusing the WINDOWS domain with the EMAIL domain.
          The box that you have posted is the WINDOWS domain and is completely unrelated to the EMAIL domain of the user.

          That box does NOT control the email address the user gets, it has nothing to do with the email address the user gets.

          If you want Exchange to accept email for other domains then you simply add those domains to the Accepted Domain list and then configure an email address policy to set the email addresses on the users as required. If the email address is going to be the primary email address for users, and they are going to be using Outlook Anywhere, then you will also have to cover autodiscover externally for those domains. That will either mean using SRV records, or additional autodiscover DNS records and additional names in the SSL certificate.

          However if you want the users to be able to use that email domain as their login domain then you will have to add the domain as an additional SPN value in the domain configuration. That is completely unrelated to Exchange.

          Simon.

            Just a quick question do you want to implement additional eMail domains or are you refering to additional domains within a active directory?

            I guess it's the first, if so just create other accepted domains and configure your E-mail address policies appropriate.

            If you want drop downs just create your own application for user management else use the filter options provided by E-mail address policies.

              Hi All,

              I try to make more easy to understand my problem for all of you.


              We have configured exchange 2010 successfully with a domain like: xyz.com

              Now we want to configured two more domains like: abc.com and def.com on same exchange server (where we have configured xyz.com domain already) so that we can create email users and send and receive email with these (xyz.com,abc.com and def.com) domains particularly and separately.

              Please suggest

                Google.

                Everything is documented in Technet - it would be a shame to waste all that time Microsoft spent writing it.
