exchange server becoms part of AD....
Active director connector is not ment for exchange to communicate with AD....

Domain controllers will communicate as they are designed to if they are able to resolve each other... and exchange will communicate if it can discover the domain controllers using local DNS.

Active Directory connector is not required for an Exchange 2003 deployment. It is used to allow an Exchange 5.5 server to connect to an AD domain.

Hi,

As the others have said you only need the ADC if you are running Exchange 5.5 in your domain to allow replication of Exchange information between AD and the Exchange 5.5 directory. Here's a really good article on it - http://www.msexchange.org/tutorials/Overview-Active-Directory-Connector.html
