Arabsoft-ACS used Ask the Experts™
Dear All,

While we doing Exchange 2010 installation, it's ask me for Exchange Organization name. I need a help to know the following:

1- For what we need this name?
2- Do we can put it as our domain name "ADC.Local"?
3- Do we can change it latter?

You can change it later but it involves hacking the registry and partially reinstalling Exchange. It's recommended you plan it correctly now.

This can be anything you like, I normally don't change it and leave it as First Organisation, that way if the company changes name later it's not a huge issue.

As demazter has pointed out, it is a name used by the system. Your users won't need to know this name and it can be anything.
