Running Exchange 2013 on multiple forest

    Question

  • Dear Experts

    We are on test lab running Two Virtual Machines (VM1, VM2) using VMware workstation, on top of that we installed Domain controller with windows server 2012R2 on VM1 and VM2, then we have linked them together using static routing, then we built trust relation from VM1 toward VM2 one way trust using Active Directory Trust and services. VM1 on one forest(client.com.tr) and VM2 on another separated forest (server.com.tr). the Forest and domain functional level for both is windows server2012R2.

    Now We are planning to install Exchange 2013 on VM2 which is on ( server.com.tr) forest, but at the same we would like to allow users from (client.com.tr) to  Access that exchange which is in another forest.

    the question is

    1-How can we implement that step-by-step procedure?

    2- Is there any Pre or Post configuration ?

  • I deleted your two duplicate posts in other Exchange 2013 forums.

    Bing "Exchange Linked Mailbox".  I'm sure you'll find plenty of resources for how to do it.
