    Re: ADS & Exchange in a same Server???

    Yes, but it is against Microsoft best practice (see, for example: http://hellomate.typepad.com/exchang...ge_on_a_d.html http://forums.petri.com/showthread.php?t=7647)

    But if you have an existing Exchange member server and DCPromo, or if you install Exchange on an existing DC and unpromote it, you are more or less guarenteed to have problems.

    Best advice is to keep Exchange (any version) separate from the DC role -- virtualise Exchange if you are short on physical hardware
