Exchange 2007 Deployment

I have a scenario where I want to migrate Exchange 2003 to an Exchange 2007 SP 1 CCR. There is also a requirement for mailbox servers on remote sites to limit the amount of traffic traversing the link.

Am I right in saying that I need a 2003+SP2 DC & GC, Hub transport server, and a mailbox server on the remote sites?

They will also be using OWA. The A record will point to the HQ so will the client access server in be able to access mailboxes in the remote sites?

Thanks.

If they are using OWA and the A record points to the HQ, bandwidth will still be going from the remote site to the main site. The solution depends on how many remote clients you have. If it is a small office of 5 people, there is no reason to install 2 servers at the remote site for AD queries and mailbox stores. Outlook is pretty good at managing bandwidth by only downloading email headers until you want the entire email.
I have remote sites where a few people work with a cable modem, and a Cisco 800 series router that auto-vpn's back to the home office. This works great and is very cost effective.

Thanks for the reply....If we forget about the OWA for now is this right?

They have up to 100 users on some of the remote sites

Having the DC on one server and the Exchange roles on another server

Correct. You definitely want Exchange by itself.
