Hi all,

I am a bit confused on the best deploy of the Exchange Server 2007 SP1.

Since my basic knowledge of AD ...

Let me said my environment and my story here.

I am now deploy a test environment for the Trail Exchange Server 2007 SP1 for testing ....

My company have a SonicWALL firewall, our LAN are using IP 192.168.18.x/24
And the AD Server is on the same network of the LAN

The Exchange now are on the same LAN too, mean it is on the 192.168.18.x/24 and I am using the port forward to let internet can access this server ......

Then now I want to try rebuild from start, and place the Exchange to the DMZ by IP 172.16.8.x/24

And the firewall setting the DMZ zone can not access the LAN Zone.

Then the problems here, how the Exchange can join the LAN's AD Domian then installing?

I need open what port/services?

Whatever this case, by Microsoft's best way, one Edge Server on the DMZ, and other role on the LAN, it is same like above, then how to let the DMZ Edge Server can communication with the LAN's AD Server?

Thank you of your time and help.
