Just finished installing two Exchange 2010 mailbox servers. They are not in production yet. I noticed something weird when I tried to create a new User/Mailbox using the Exchange 2010 console. First, we have two Domain. A root and a child. Lets call them domain.com and child.domain.com. Exchange 2010 and all our users are in child.domain.com. Root is pretty much empty. When I start the wizard to create the user, I noticed that on the User Information screen,
the drop down to the right of "User logon name (User Principal Name), it only lists my root Domain, not the child. I checked our Exchange 2007 servers and they list both the root and child.
I don't think this makes a differenct when creating the user but I was wondering why this is happening, and does it really make a different if the user is created with the root domain in this field even though the users account is in the child domain.

Did you install Exchange in the root domain or the child domain?

II ran setup in the child domain. That is where all our production servers are. The servers are members of our child domain.I did run setup.com /prepare Domain in our root and our child Domain. If I did not do this, I would not have been able to install Exchange as the setup prereqs complains about this if you did not run it.

If you choose an OU to where the new user resides, the EMC gui will automatically change the @domain.com to @child.domain.com
