Exchange 2000 and AD

Hi All,

I have a working AD, within this AD is a WIndows 2003 domain controller, this is the only DC in the domain. I also have a Windows 2000 server on which Exchange Server 2000 is installed and has been working for quite some time. Now thing is if i add a new user i normally goto the Windows 2003 and create the users but then i have to goto the Exchange server 2000 to create their mailboxes. Is there anyway in which i can get the exchange tabs within Users and computer on the Windows 2003 domain controller?

Cheers

Hi georgemildred,

You need to install the Exchange system manager on the AD

Problem is, you will not be able to install the Exchange 2000 system manager.

Download a trial of Exchange 2003, then install the exchange system manager from that

Or, install the ESM on another 2000 DC (or just create users from the exchange server)

my real problem here is i need to use a ldap lookup query to lookup users mailboxes within Active Directory, now with the exchange server residing on a windows 2000 server that is a member and the domain controller which is 2003 not having the mailboxes attached in users and computers its proving a nightmare to complete the ldap lookup

any ideas on what to do

Simplify Active Directory Administration

Administration of Active Directory does not have to be hard.  Too often what should be a simple task is made more difficult than it needs to be.The solution?  Hyena from SystemTools Software.  With ease-of-use as well as powerful importing and bulk updating capabilities.

You mean besides what I have already suggested?

Hi georgemildred,

As the exchange mailbox is an attribute of the account, you can just query the AD directly. What are you trying to query?

Good Luck,

Chris

Hi!
You can not install Exchange 2000 on Windows 2003 server (actually you can but that’s another topic) but you can install the ESM on your Windows 2003 DC. This will upgrade the ADUC snap-in and you will be able to see the Exchange tabs in the user accounts properties. Here is a short screencast (video) which demonstrates what I am saying:
