I want to run my exchange server on a separate server. I'm installing the SBS 2011 as main domain with Sharepoint on srv1 and installing Standard 2008 on srv2 with exchange 2010. I want srv2 running exchange 2010 to be the default exchange server for users and srv1 to create the mailboxes for it from the sbs console.

I have a separate license for all servers so it's no licensing issue. I know I need to join srv2 to srv1, but whats the best way during installation?

If I need other software or add-ons, what?  Why Microsoft forces you into the exchange server on the domain server by default I'm not sure but changing it doesn't seem to be easy.
