Hi Experts!!
I am installing Windows 2008 std and Exchange 2007 std in a new server to test it's installation and think to migrate our office mail server to use Exchange 2007. Since my company has 2 branches offices i am installing it in Site A, where i have a single domain controller and file server, my plan it's to move (phisically) the server to Site B, which is a more a datacenter room where i will install another domain controller to connect to the one in Site A.
Here's my question.
If i install Exchange 2007 in Site A, do you think it'll be safe to move it to Site B ?

thanks,

Guido

As long as your exchange server can communicate with the DC (domain controler), you can move it to site B or C or D or E....

Yeah, i was fast to click submit. DO NOT forget to configure your DC in site B as a global catalog.

I read an article from MSExchange.com that to install Ex2007 on a W2K8 server the server has to be a RODC or ROGC (Read Only Global Catalog)
