exchange implemetation between two sites
Posted on 2006-07-05
I will try to explain the situation first:
There is a main site A, and a remote site B.
Main site A has a win2003 server and a win2003 TS server.
site B has a sbs 2003 server
The users want to transfer files from site A to site B and vice versa.
The users also want to use exchange.
Right now these are two different forests domainA.local and domainB.local
Their email domains are domainA.com and domainB.com
Right now they are using another mailserver system.
The idea is to add another win2003 server to site An with exchange 2003
The site B only contains a few users, so maybe it's best to format that sever and start with server 2003 + exchange?
That way we will have the same domainname: siteA.local with an additional DC at site B.
The problem is, is this the 'best' solution?
What about the domain names?
users at site a want to use user@domainA.com, users at site b want to use user@siteB.com.
One more thing ... sometimes users from siteA are working at siteB.
Won't this be a problem? when A users logon to site B (same AD), will they use exchangeA instead of the exchangeB server???
Won't this be a problmen over vpn?
What about trust relationship, will this be needed?
alot of questions :)
I hope somebody can help me a little bit.
