Second Domain Name on Exchange Server

Second Domain Name on Exchange Server

Post by Indranie Sanicha » Wed, 20 Aug 1997 04:00:00



Hi,

I have Exchange Server 4.0 on NT 4.0 server. The Exchange server is setup
for domain name 'ArtLeather.Com'.

Now we're partnership with another company that is part of our network.
And we would like for the other company (gnpframe.com)  to use the same
exchange server for e-mail.

Is this possible to have ArtLeather.Com and GnpFrame.com setup with
Exchange server 4.0?

I would appreciate any feedback on this issue.

Thanks in advance.

Second Domain Name on Exchange Server

Post by Ray Sundstro » Wed, 20 Aug 1997 04:00:00


Indranie,

This turns out to be fairly simple.  There are two issues to address:

1) Set up Domain Name Service (DNS) entries for the domains.

If your DNS is being handled by an Internet Service Provider (ISP), then
you will want them to make MX (Mail Exchange) and A (Host Address) entries
for the various domains something like the following:

For domain1com - The 'master' domain, and the one defined in the NT
server's DNS entry for the TCP/IP protocol that is hosting Exchange:

domain1.com                     MX              exchange.domain1.com            (Your Exchange Server)
exchange.domain1.com            A               200.200.200.200                 (It's IP address)

The other domains

domain2.com                     MX              exchange.domain1.com            (Your Exchange Server)
exchange.domain1.com            A               200.200.200.200                 (It's IP address)

domain3.com                     MX              exchange.domain1.com            (Your Exchange Server)
exchange.domain1.com            A               200.200.200.200                 (It's IP address)

domain4.com                     MX              exchange.domain1.com            (Your Exchange Server)
exchange.domain1.com            A               200.200.200.200                 (It's IP address)

Notice that all the domains' MX records point to the same host.  That's it
from the DNS side of things.

2)  Edit Exchange Recipient's SMTP addresses to reflect the proper domain.

Each Mailbox (Exchange Recipient) will be set up with a default set of
email addresses.  You will need to check each one and edit appropriately to
be sure they are using the proper domain qualifier for the SMTP address.

If the users are already set up, just go into the affected users and change
their address to reflect the proper domain.  If the users are not already
set up, and you have a lot of them, it may be worth setting up templates
for each of the domains, and then use the appropriate template during the
setup process.

That's all that will be needed.

Second Domain Name on Exchange Server

Post by Indranie Sanicha » Tue, 26 Aug 1997 04:00:00


Hi,

My ISP made the necessary changes for the second domain (gnpframe.com).

I can send e-mail to anyone with the username I created with the second

myself with this domain.

My firewall log indicates that the destination is 206.181.71.13x (which is
the IP address for gnpframe.com.  The e-mail does not get delivery.  I'm
not sure what exactly I need to do on the Exchange to accept the mail for
the second domain.

All mail for artleather.com and gnpframe.com should go to the setting of
the artleather.com domain. I can send out and receive e-mail from this
domain.  

Please advice.

Thanks in advance.

1. Unable to add second domain name or route mail to private domain name in Exchange 2000

That's kind of curious.  Recipient policies don't particularly care whether
it's a valid domain name, unless perhaps you're using some weird characters
in xxxx.org?  When I say that "not valid" is okay, I mean that
xxxxx.org.blah.blah.blah would be acceptable.


xxxxxx.org.
