We have just implemented Exchange into our child domain based in Thailand, as they were running on another mail system. The parent domain is based in the UK, with a VPN between firewalls on each site.
I have followed all of the guides, and I have SUCCESSFULLY installed Exchange 2007 into the child domain. (Win 2008 box)
However, I cannot find any guides specific to configuring a child domain as a "fresh install".
From the child, I can see all of the parent settings based under the Organisastion Configuration, such as address lists, email accepted domains and any policies etc.
Now, I'm not sure how to configure everything. I want the UK settings to stay as they are, but I want to configure it so the Thailand Exchange server can send and recieve email on their DOMAIN.CO.TH
Note: Our domain names do not match our email domain. (we use .local for internal domains)
I'm not sure how the "organisation" is making sure email is going to the correct domains. I do not want email that is send to DOMAIN.CO.TH to end up going to the parent domain and then routed to the child.
Please could someone point me in the right direction of what to do next.
PS for what it's worth,at some point we will be implementing a new Exchange 2007 server in the UK and migrating the 2003 Exchange across to this.
