Just as the title says, i have a new exchange 2010 deployment in a root domain.  I also have another site that has a child domain that i want to be able to add users to the exchange server.  anyone have experience with this and maybe give me a quick howto?

Thanks

i've done in past with 2003 using RUS, but isn't that removed for 2010?

First you run from root domain

setup /PrepareAllDomains

When you want to create user mailboxes for users in a child domain you have to select a domain controller in the child domain when creating it.

Test it.

To run setup /PrepareAllDomains, you must be a member of the Enterprise Admins group

That is better option...I prefer to keep Exchange separate. But how you will make use to access this forest?

i was thinking of maybe using like outlook anywhere, so i could create the user in AD of the exchange forest, then I could create a client cert for all the outlook machines?
