share and/or divide responsibilities for managing Exchange and OU for a remote site in single forest

Hi All,

What would be the best approach to share / divide responsibilities for managing exchange server in single forest.

CompanyA has taken over CompanyB and CompanyC. They migrated CompanyB and Company C into CompanyA's single forest. CompanyB and Company C will share the same SMTP namespace and will be loctaed in the same physical location which will be linked to back to CompanyA network. There will be no server at the location however there will be IT team that would like to admin the site.

What would be the best approach so IT team on site could fully manage the site?



thanks

From an exchange point of view its not as easy, but generally you just setup Company B as a new OU in the main domain - in that you can setup domain delegation and access rights to allow the IT team to manage everything underneath Company B OU

You can't define the site as an Active Directory site and allocate permissions that way. An active directory site is defined in terms of ranges of network address, so can't be used to delegate permissions on user objects.

You have to group the users in some other way. In active Directory the only NATIVE way to delegate contol is via OUs. So you must as wct296 says put the users in an OU and delegate control on the OU to the remote admins. In Exchnage 2003 (and I think 2007) you do this by setting permissions diretly in the OU. In Exchange 2010 you will need to set up role based access groups.

If you have Exchange 2010 there are some exaples here:-

that you may be able to adapt to your needs.
