How to let a user manage Exchange 2010 on his own PC

This is SBS2011 which has Exchange 2010 running on the same server.
I would like to let my associate be the Exchange Admin to fully manage Exchange 2010 on his own PC without working on SBS2011.
Is this possible?
I think the challenges are
1. How can I assign him Exchange Admin privilege? He should not be assigned domain admin.
2. What software should I install on his PC?
3. Anything else?
Please help
Thanks

Hi ,

You need to install Exchange Management tool on his PC. He can only connect to server only if he is in same network as Exchange server.

1. How can I assign him Exchange Admin privilege? He should not be assigned domain admin -->
 --> Itdepends what level of Access you want to provide him? What activities will be carried out by your engineer? There are differect RBAC on
      Exchange. Refer below URL to RBAC.

2. What software should I install on his PC
--> Exchange Management Tool
3. Anything else?
--> Nothing will need if above requirements are met.

"Exchange Management Tool"
- I understand i will have to install this kind of tool. Can you please give a bit more details? (is it something free to download or it's on the Exchange Installation DVD?)
Thanks

>> or it's on the Exchange Installation DVD

Correct you install it from the Exchange Setup CD/DVD, select management tools only. (and make sure his PC isn't x32 bit!) Because, Exchange 2010 was the first version that didn't have any x32 bit support
