Hi all -

We have recently upgraded our infastructure so that we are a pure 2008 forest/domain

We are running a hybrid Exchange Server 2003 and Server 2010 environment aswell

My question is about the management of Exchange Server 2003 from active directory

Is it possible/recommend to install the Exchange Management tools on the Server 2008 domain controller and manage exchange settings from there?

Ive never been in this boat before and couldnt find any reference out there readily available

Any input/suggestions would be great

Thanks

Hi,

You cannot install Exchange System Management tools on Windows Server 2008 Server. The best way is to do rdp and then manage from the exchange server or w2k3 server with management console or xpsp2 box with management console installed.
