Hi

I had a query on AD forests I was hoping someone could help me with.

Let's say I have a forest with forest root: production.kam.com

Is it also possible to have another forest named: test.kam.com

and have a 2 way trust between the two? Or will the fact that both have "kam.com" in their namespace cause an issue?

Secondly, is it possible for production.kam.com and test.kam.com to use the same Exchange org? I assume I would need to use MIIS/Interorg replication tool to replicate calendar info/GAL etc?

I haven't fully tested your scenario but you should be able to, where you would run into issues is if you had the same NetBIOS name but forest1 netbios name = production and forest2 =test
I don't believe It is  possible to have an Exchange organization span more than one windows forest.  Let some of the exchange guys chime in on that one too.
Thanks
