Exchange Server 5.5


I have a Windows 2000 Server, and I would like to install Exchange Server 5.5.  My server gives me the warning that Exchange Server 5.5 might not run correctly on this computer.

What will happen if I install Exchange Server 5.5?  Can I install it safely?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

You can check wheather applications are compatible with windows 2000 on the microsoft web site.  go to the windows section and then wins 2000.  Should be ok.

Exchange will work on a Win2K server
but they want to tell you that
you may have to install additional software to let exchange use the Active Directory of your Win2000 server
(Exchange uses it's own Directory)

the additional software is called Active Directory Connector

You can then replicate changes in the A.D. to exchange or the other way round.

The next release of Exchange (2000 or Platinum) will use the A.D. of Win2K instead of it's own (private) Directory Services ...

Yes you can install safely, i had this problem and i tried and exchange run ok. But, be careful, you have to download the services packs for Backoffice or Exchange only.
