Exchange 2003 servers, single domain, all in same forest how to enable "routing".
Posted on 2004-10-19
Basically i need to setup an exchange 2003 system for 11sites in total.
Let me explain the current setup.
We've created fully functional vpns to all 10 client sites. One site has a t3 connection and will hold the main exchange server. the other sites each have a exchange 2003 server of their own.
I will have about 120 users and they will all be spread accross the 11 exchange servers. All use the same email domain address email@example.com ..etc
The main site is using windows 2003 server and exchange 2003.
All of the clients sites use windows 2000 server and exchange 2003.
All sites are joined to the same domain, eg: main server is mainservername.domain.com
client site servers are: servername.site1.domain.com,servername.site2.domain.com....etc
Ok so i've installed exhance 2003 and when i open up the Exchange system manager i can see all the other servers listed this shows me that all are isntalled and talking to active directory correctly?.
To test connectivity I created a test account on the main server and one on the first client server. I sent an email from the client server to the person at the main server and they recieved it ok. However when i sent from the main server to the client server it failed to arrive, how do i find out what went wrong? - i didn't get a NDR... Is there something i'm missing? Do i need to configure exchange and tell it to find the server that holds the users mailbox on the client site? I thought it would be intelligent enough to do this itself.
I hope this is explained well enough.
look forward to your responses...
