2 internal domain and 2 different email domains RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,
    I have a situation in which I need to add a sub domain (br.abcd.local) to my existing internal domain (abcd.local).
    The situation is, email accepted domain assoicated with abcd.local is example.com. I need to associate br.example.com with br.abcd.local sub domain and still maintain both the internal domain, both the external name, access resorces internally between users of abcd.local & br.abcd.local at the same time, maintain 2 different MX records and maintain their own email.
    The domain in Windows 2008 and Excahnge 2007.
    I am not forgetting the fact multiple domain is discouraged.
    Any input is appreciated.
    Regards
    Liby

  • As far as accepted domains are concerned, refer to http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb124423(EXCHG.80).aspx or if you have more specific questions, post them on the Exchange forum. I'm not entirely clear what you mean by "maintain their own email" - can you be more specific?

  • Exhange uses the AD so you can only have one Exchange site per AD forest.  Exchange writes to the Microsoft Exchange container within the Configuration Naming Context.
