Creating a New AD User
Posted on 2008-06-24
I have recently taken over the support of a Network with a 2003 DC and 2007 Exchange and have found something odd when creating a new AD User.
I have never used Exchange 2007 before and I have always created a new user on the DC by right clicking the respective OU in AD and selecting New User, which will also create a new Mailbox, but with this Exchange 2007 new users have to be created through the Exchange Management console and creating a new mailbox, which eventually replicates to the Users OU on the DC, I then have to move the new user to the correct OU.
Is this the correct procedure when using Exchange 2007 or is something wrong.
If i try to create a new user on the DC, then a mailbox is not created and Outlook will not find it.
