As long as the server is a member of the AD domain it'll be fine.

IIRC you can run forest prep/domain prep from the exchange server itself (it's a good few years since I last did it though).

Not the solution you were looking for? Getting a personalized solution is easy.

Hi Chrisgmoss,

To install Exchange, you just need the server to be a member of a forest that has been updated to support MS Exchange. The advice from MS is that the server should not be a DC.

Good Luck,

Chris
