Yes you can install the Exchange Server on a Windows NT server which
is not a PDC or a BDC without taking any additional steps.
Aditi Corp was formerly known as NetQuest Inc.
New servers arrive soon. Both will be Windows 2000 SP3 member servers in a
native AD domain.
At the moment directory replication isn't needed.
Basically I need to install 5.5 SP4, move a bunch of mailboxes and public
folders, move replication between this site and a remote site, and have an
SMTP connector on one of the servers.
I'm aware of the "Ed Crowley Move Server Method", I'd appreciate a
refresher if there's any special steps to take when installing Exchange 5.5
on a Windows 2000 member?
Having read the MS documents, the only gotcha's I've seen are to make sure
the SMTP service is disabled (IIS won't be installed), to make sure the
service account is in the local administrators or power users group, and
(this one I'm not sure about) if you have Terminal Services installed, to
run setup from the Add/Remove applet in Control Panel - we will have TS
installed, but in remote admin mode only. As these are member servers, I
believe LDAP conflicts shouldn't be an issue?
I'll likely do an installation into a new exchange organization/site just
to check things appear to work - I don't want to install it, find it adds
the server to the existing site/org then keels over before the install
