Active Directory & Exchange 2003 not synched

I have deployed a test network in my lab.  First I created an Enterprise 2003 R2 server and deployed it as the first DC Forest Master.

I then Created a second Enterprise 2003 R2 server, joined it to the domain and the installed ISA 2004 Enterprise Edition.

Then created a third Enterprise 2003 R2 server, and joined it to the domain.  Then ran the Forest Prep, and then Domain Prep to modify the active directory schema in prelude to deploying Exchange 2003 Enterprise Edition.  Once successful I then deployed Exchange 2003 Enterprise Edition successfully.

When I access active directory users and computers on the DC I do not get exchange options in the create new user properties popup.  If I access active directory users and computers on the Exchange server the exchange properties are visibil and available when creating a new user.

At my job site thety have the exact same problem with active directory.  I am not sure if they are enterprise servers though.

Can anyone assist me in tracking down and resolving this issue?

Sincerely
Matthew E. Newman

that is b/c you have to have the Exchange System management tools intalled on that machine for the exchange options to show up.
in order to manage exchange users on ANY maching (server or client) you MUST have ADUC installed AND The exchange system tools.  You can install the exchange system tools by putting in the exchange CD running the setup.exe in the I386 folder and choosing management tools only (rather than actually installing exchange)

Tha sounds reasonable, Exchange 5.5 worked the same way.  But, I thought that when you updated the Schema that it changed the properties page for U&C?  Is it correct to assume that by adding the Exchange tools that you are updating a module or properties of an MMC?

Thanks

that is not correct. you MUST have the ESM (exchange system manager) installed in you want to do anything with exchange (such as creating/moving a mailbox or seeing any of the exchange attributes in ADUC)


>>Is it correct to assume that by adding the Exchange tools that you are updating a module or properties of an MMC?
i know that on the ADUC MMC that after you install ESM the exchange tabs will show up, so yes.
