Hello if ADS means Active Directory Server

then you need to install:

1 - DNS
2 - ADS
3 - WINS
4 - Exchange 2007
5 - DHCP

How many servers do you want it depends on how many clients do you have and how many sites, but I would say for a small environment, put the DNS, WINS, ADS, DHCP on one server and another server to run Exchange 2007.

Again it depends on your environment but you can run each on a separate server and you can even spread Exchange Rules on 5 diffrent servers.

If you want to be really optimum, I would say put ADS on one server (except the Global Catalog) and put the Global Catalog on another server.

Please give me more details about ur environment and I can help you.

Thank you.

Excellent..

THIS IS A TEST NETWORK WHAT I AM TRYING TO IMPLEMENT.
All this is to create a test lab as my development Domain and them try migrating/Upgrading exchange 2003 to exchange 2007.
So firstly i need to know which to start of with and what to be in which server.
Hardware is no problem and even software i have all the Hard and softwares.
Ok i shall take it like this.
DNS
ADS
WINS
DHCP
all the above on one server
Exchange 2007 on 2 server 64 bit.
How do i match the ADS and Exchange machines .Will it ask me while installing exchange or is there a commands to put though.
Any good documents on such senarios would be helpful as well.

ok after you install the DNS and the ADS, you will have another server which should be member in the same Domain, so you will go on the new server and join it to the domain, and then install Exchange, Exchange then will communicate with the ADS and put there all the needed entries, if the new server is not a member in the domain, Exchange will not be installed at all.

Thank you.
