Hi

Can you install the Exchange Management tools on a different server other than your Exchange server?

My exchange server runs very slow when logged onto the console, so i would like to move them off, ideally i would like to put it on my Domain controller, then when setting up new users i can use AD and ExchManager in the same RDP console.

Any advice greatly recieved on this.

Regards

I would avoid installing it there.
Infact we would also not login to DC everytime for Mmanaging it I would use AD  Mgmt tools as a best practize

Hi,
NO issues Mgmt Tools on DC will not be a problem. Just a best  practise we do not do that. Also like I said best practise, do not logon onto DC use AD Mgmt Tools etc.
As such there is no issue and no specific steps. Follow the link provided by me earlier
Thanks
