So I'm building a network from scratch with Windows Server 2003 & Exchange Server 2003. My plan is for my domains to be:
This relates to a question I asked in the past. So that when I setup exchange, all these networks share the same GAL. What is the best way to achieve this?
Do I need a server setup as a root domain at mycompany.com and setup the other's as child domains? If that is the case, is it possible to setup the root domain, and a subdomain on the same server? I have to keep the macines I use to a minimum. Perhaps I'm going at this wrong, and this has to do with configuring DNS differently.
In the past I had configured 3 different domains in their own forest, but this didn't allow me to share their GAL. Thats the ultimate goal here. To have the 3 unique domains but all having the same GAL.
Please advise on the best way forward.
