Hello, if I get an early reply through email, it will be greatful.

I am proposing to deploy the following setup for our Group companies.

We have 5 Centres....Melbourne (Aus), Pune (India), Bangalore (India), Mumbai (India), Cbe (India)

I am going to make Melbourne as First Domain in the Forest and rest as child domains.  company.com, child1.company.com, child2.company.com, child3.company.com, child4.company.com.  These will be under VPN.

We want to have one email domain identity as username@company.com.  I am going to install first exchange server in Melbourne, executing Forest prep, creating routing group connectors, primary mx as melbourne and secondaries as child domains.

what should I do in the Child Domains Exchange Servers?  Please help.

regards

Srini

You only need 1 server to do this. Have your main domain exchange server set as the username@company.com and setup a trust relationship with the rest of the domains. Even if you set a server as child1.company.com they can still use company.com as the exchange server.

Don't setup exchange on each child domain, only the main domain

If you've already setup trust relationships between all the domains including the main domain, all you need to do is use outlook or whatever email client you have use exchange as the mail server. When it asks for the server name just type the name of the "MAIN" exchange server with the correct username and password for each client and it will work.

Hi bbrunning,

The workload on the server will be so high as the ONLY exchange server serving the whole domain.

I suggest install exchange on others as backup servers just to provide mails to other clients...

5 Centres, but how many users at each centre?

I agree with ihasham. Should use exchange server on all locations. This would also minimize issues arising when client connects to exchange over a VPN.

Definitely, if he can afford the hardware, Windows and Exchange server for each location.  But if some locations have say 2 or 5 users, it may not be cost effective.
