Is it normal when you install Exchange 2000 Server as a member server and then go to a DC to create a new user, that your not be able to mailbox-enable the new user from that DC. I have to go to the Exchange server to Mailbox-enable the newly created user. Unless I create the user from the Exchange "member server" then I can Mailbox-enable it in one step.

Thank you for your response!

Yup, Exchange updates User manager to enable mailbox creation, but only on the server it is installed on. Same on NT, and Exchange 5.5.

Just install the ESM on the DC, you'll be good to go. PeterMac is correct, this is by design.

Exchange 2000 on Windows 2000 member server:  You will need to install ADC (Active Directory Connector) in order to create a new account on both DC and Exchange Server (mailbox) at one shot (No need to create a user on DC and then mailbox on Exchange, both of them will be created on either server)  You can create a one way or two way agreement on ADC.

Exchange 5.5 on Windows NT 4.0 member server:  You need to install Exchange Administrator and then you can create a new account on both DC and Exchange.
