Exchange 2000 - multiple domains / multiple servers

Posted on 2003-03-28

We have 1 machine running windows 2000 server with exchange 2000.
This machine is also the domain controller.
We have a 3Mb DSL connection.

Our parent company runs a separate exchange server on a separate domain miles away.
They have a T1 connection.

Is it possible to tie the exchange servers together.
The reason we want to do this is so the Global Address List will contain recipients from both organizations as well as to take advantage of the many other features exchange has to offer.
(i.e. Scheduling, Tasks etc.)

I realize that this is probably not something that can be answered through a message board, but any direction that can be given would be greatly appreciated.
Whether it is the title of a book I should read or the fact that we shouldn't even bother to attempt it would be great!

You can choose several scenario`s,

You can let the T1 exchange server be the frontend and the DSL server the backend. If you want both servers to act "individually" then you just have to alter your mailing routes, and your DNS entries.
