  • thanks, is there any way around this so that I can integrate it with ad?

    No, there is no workaround, but there is nothing stopping your from using ADUC on the Exchange 2003 Server.
    Do note that Windows Server 2012 has a totally different OS Architecture (only x64) and Exchange 2003 requires an OS that is x32.

    You can install Exchange System Manager on a Windows Server 2008 x32.
    For that that you need to download the "Vista Version". Like here

  • Hi,

    Exchange Server 2003 management tools for remote administration can be installed on a computer running Windows XP SP1, Windows XP SP2, Windows Server 2003, or Windows Server 2000 SP3.

    Windows server 2012 doesn’t support exchange 2003.
