Exchange 2010 in Exchange 2007 Environment - cannot see both servers in EMC

I have a working Exchange 2007 SP2 environment.  I installed a new Exchange 2010 Server on the same domain.

Problem:  From 2007 EMC Server Configuration, cannot see the new 2010 server.  From 2010 EMC Server Configuration, cannot see the 2007 server, though the 2010 EMC under Microsoft Exchange On-Premises section does lshow that there is one 2007 server and one 2010 server.  Is this normal?

yes this is totally normal, in exchange 2007 console you will see only your 2007 servers and in 2010 you will see only your 2010 servers

I agree with both comments, you can only manage 2007 exchange with 2007 tools and 2010 exchange with 2010 tools. the API's are different.

You can use the Powershell command line to manage some of the features on 2007 and 2008
