Calendar sharing two exchange 2003 organisations RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    Hopefully this will be an easy one for somebody:

    I work for an organisation which has recently merged with another organisation (two different domains). Both have Exchange 2003 and there is now a physical private connection between the two exchange organisations and a forest trust between the two domains. I've been asked to allow calendar sharing between the two domains, is the interorg rep tool my only option, or does the fact that they are physically connected mean I could put a different solution in place that will allow users to share and open calendars between the two domains/organisations?

     

    Thanks in advance...

    I'm pretty sure that all you'll be able to manage is free/busy
    information exchange between the two organizations (using the software
    you mentined above). With Exchange 2007/2010 you be able to establish
    a federation between the two organizations, but not with Exchange
    2003.
