This is probably an simple question but one I need answered.  I have two DC's. One is a Win 2K DC running DNS and GC. The other is a Win 2K3 with ALL the FSMO roles also running DC and GC.  In Active Directory under Sites/Default-First-Site-Name/Server I have:
+ DC Win 2K3
      + NTDS Settings
+ DC Win 2K
      + Exchange Settings
      + NTDS Settings
Can someone explain the Exchange Settings Folder under the DC Win 2K?
I plan on doing a DCPROMO on the DC Win 2K. Do I need to transfer the Exchange Settings folder to the DC Win 2K3?
Please Consult
Thanks in Advance

In ESM you can select what servers the exchange box talks too.

Yes, I can see...
Exchange is pointed to All Domain Controllers however only the DC Win 2K3 shows in the list.   Yet I do not see the Exchange Settings Folder under AD/Sites/Default-First-Site-Name/Server/DC Win 2K3 what am I missing?  
Thanks for your reponse

Is Exchange on the 2k box? I just took a look at how mine is listed in sites and services. My Exchange server is listed there with the exchange settings folder underneath it.

No, Exchange is running on a seperate box. The 2k box is one of two DC's and one of two DNS servers.  
bhnmi;
Is your Exchange Settings folder listed underneath a 2K box or a 2K3 box
