Recipient Policies and AD Applications
Posted on 2011-04-28
I have a question about recipient policies and applications that use Active Directory to authentication. We are about to change the default recipient policy in exchange 2000 and add a new recipient policy for a new set of users.
My question is, how will modifying default recipient policy affect Active Directory if all we do is a new SMTP address to it? Will it affect user log ons? Will it affect other applications that user AD?
As I understand it , changing the default policy affects AD globally, so in case it does_not do what we want it to (although we´ve tested in a lab several times over) how can we roll-back the changes if we need to?
What should we consider before touching the recipient policies?
