Can BES Express on one server work with multiple domains

hi guys

I have a BES express server. However, we have two domains part of a forest. One is called uk.fc.local. The other is us.fc.local. Each have their own Exchange servers running.

The Bes Express for uk.fc.local server is running fine. Would it be possible to get people on the Us.fc.local to use their blackberrys also on the uk.fc.local server?

Or, does each Exchange domain have to have its own Bes Express server?

Thanks for helping

I think it is not possible, but to check you can check with MAPI connection. Open BES Configuration utility run as administrator and check if you are able to connect Us.fc.local's mailbox using uk.fc.local CAS server.

As BES server will use only one MAPI connection server at a time.
if both domains are in same forests, BES will collect the information automatically.

Thanks guys.

Gaurav - both domains are part of the same forest. But if I try to create a user on the BES who is on the us.fc.local, it won't find them.
does the other domain is having proper permission for BES? you might need check the permissons for BES account on the other domain
Amit KumarCommented:
Make sure your Exchange org is same for both domains, in case they are in diff org then it is not possible to run BES for multiple domain as your BES service account won't impersonate Exchange users apart from parent domain.

To check the same.

Open OWA and login with your BES admin account, then open another mailbox of US domain and UK domain. if both are opening it means your BESadmin account can impersonate both domains.
