Exchange in the parent domain - create / manage email from child domain

Hi,

We have a parent domain (domain.com) everything is setup here (Exchange Server). We newly create a child domain india.domain.com, we want to give the right to the administrator india.domain.com to create user and email in his child domain but the email will be maintain in our Exchange server in the parent domain.

This is what I was thinking :
1 - On the Child Domain run a /domain prep with Exchange Setup CD
2 - Install Exchange Management tools on the Child DC
3 - Give the Exchange Admin Rights to the Child DC admin
4 - Try ?

Can I do that or their another procedure I should do. For now deploying an Exchange Server in the Child domain is not an option for now.

We have Exchange 2003 and 2003 Domain Controllers.
Thanks,

In general, all you should have to do is run DomainPrep in all the domains, not just the child domain, and
create a Recipient Update Service for each domain that will be home to mail recipients.

After that make sure to give the "admin" rights to the child domain. It should allow him to create mailboxes but not have to touch the parent server.

Ok just asking here but why do you want it that complex ?

Why not have the Parent exchange server handle all domains ?

I think your confusing how exchange works, or not properly explaining what you expect.

Why not start with how your exchange environment is set up a bit more please.

Ok let's try to clarify.

Exchange (1 front End, 2 back-end at the corporate office) it's installed in an NT domain (domain.local), All is setup and properly working.

We create a child NT domain this morning (india.domain.local). I want the Admin of India to manage the child domain including the creation of the email address. But I want the email from the india child domain host in the corporate office.

To complete the procedure :

1 - On the Child Domain run a /domain prep with Exchange Setup CD
2 - Install Exchange Management tools on the Child DC
3 - Give the Exchange Admin Rights to the Child DC admin
4 - Create a recipient update policy for the child domain and if you have an RPC error, modify the Host file of the Exchange with the NETBIOS name of the DC in the child domain
5 - Use the Web Form Based Authentication in the Exchange Web access to avoid error 401

It's working great now thanks for your input.
