Exchange Server In Another Forest
Posted on 2006-06-27
Here is the problem. We are part of a larger organization which is composed of two separate Windows 2003 forests connected physically by a T1 connection. I was recently informed that the other forest will be hosting an exchange server for our users. The idea was that the GAL and the Calender Free/Busy would be centrally managed and a central mail server would be used. My question is how to I set this up so that our users don't have to have accounts in each domain in each of the forests. I would like everything to be transparent with a single sign on. I could probably setup a forest to forest trust, but worry about exposure since this is a completly separate entity. Anyone have some guidance on how this could be done.
