We are preparing to deploy a Windows 2012R2 server (AD) + Windows Server 2012R2 with Exchange 2013.
In the Windows 2008 domain that it is replacing, we kept the local domain independent of their Internet domain name. Company.Local versus CompanyInternetName.Org, where their email address format was UserName@CompanyInternetNa
A colleague indicated that Microsoft recommends that in the Windows2012/Exchange2013 environment, that the internal domain name be kept consistent with the public domain. Therefore, to maintain the new internal domain name as CompanyInternetName.org.
Before embarking, I thought I'd check in with the Experts.
Could you please offer some feedback and recommendations?
Thanks in advance.
