  • Can Win 2008 AD installation support Exchange 2003?

    We are planning to move to Exchange 2010, but not for a while. Currently running Exchange 2003 Enterprise.

    Planning to test and implement a new AD implementation on Win2008.

    Will this new AD installation be compatible with our existing Exchange 2003 installation?

    Thanks,

    Bud

    It looks as though Microsoft Exchange 2007 is the earliest version that is compatible with Windows Server 2008.

    Although you may get 2003 to run, because it is listed as incompatible, it is likely that you will not be able to get any support if things go wrong.

    Here's a Microsoft article on it:

    A recent poll suggests that 6 out of 7 dwarfs are not happy

      You could always dump it onto a 2003 Virtual Machine on Server 2008.
