This ia all Windows2003 native with Exchange 2003 SP2
I have a Parent Domain "Domain.com". I have a Child Domain "Child.domain.com"
Currently we have a Exchange server that processes mail for @Domain.com. The emaployees in the child doimain also use @Domain.com.
The current set up is:
User in the Child domain have 2 accounts. 1 in the child for logon and 1 in the parent for email.
I want to have only one account in the child domain for authentication and for email access.
The question is:
What are the steps to install the exchange tools in the child domain to attach the child domain account to the mailbox on the exchange server.
The Child domain has only one domain controller.

My understaning is to run /domainprep in the child domain and install the exchange tools on the domain controller. Is this correct? Anything I need to look out for? Global Catolog? RUS?

Thanks
Jason

domainprep in child domain would be sufficient
make the child domain DC a GC as it's the only DC
installing exchange tool on child domain DC would be nice but not a requirement. You will need exchange tool somewhere though to perfrom exchange-related tasks
you need to create second RUS for the child domain. Instruct this RUS to use child domain DC.
