using MMC on XP terminal to administer exchange mail boxes

On my XP workstation I have installed and configured the adminpak.msi from Microsoft so I'm able to adminiter Activer Directory (users, etc) from my workstation from within a MMC snap in.  Is there a serperate install so I can manage exchange thry this as well? For now I have to go to the core domain controller to access these extra exchange functions.

Thank you!

You have to install the system management tools from the Exchange CD. Do a custom installation of Exchange. Don't forget to service pack it afterwards.

Thank you Simon!

I did the custom install on my XP machine selecting management tools and it installed great.
I am on SP2 for exchange server 2003.  Should I just download that full service pack and run on my xp terminal (as far as patching?)

Thanks again

You need to have any management tools on the same service pack as the main Exchange server. Treat anything with the management tools on it as an Exchange server just without the databases.
