Use Exchange 2010 to Manage Second Domain in Separate Forest
Posted on 2012-09-09
I have an environment that consists of two domains in seperate forests. There is forest Trust between these domains.
I have an established Exchange 2010 environment in both the domains, I want to use Domain B's exchange server to take over management of Domain A's email. The issue I think I am beginning to run into is that the Domain B's exchange server is simply unable to see Domain A's active directory to move mailboxes over. When I go to look for the active directory domain from the exchange server in Domain B, the other domain simply is not there.
I am not sure where to begin here, I have read up on perhaps using Active Directory Migration Tools to move AD to the other domain, but really thats not what I think I need to do?
I have worked in another environment in the past I have successfully used exchange to work with multiple domains. The difference, that I have noticed is that under domains and trust the other environment listed both domains. In this case though even with the trust in place I do not see this domain as an option to browse.
I am sure I am missing something here, any help appreciated.
