AD integration with Exchange 2010 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have upgraded my AD forest and I have installed Exchange 2010.  We already have Exchange 2003.  I can send message between 2010 exchange and 2003 and it is working well.  One thing I can not do is when I create AD account I still have to do on the Exchange old server because when I create the account on 2008 domain controller it does not give me an option to create a mailbox, I still have to create the account using Exchange server which have Administrative tools installed.  Is there a tool for 2008 that enables me to do this?

  • Exchange 2010 does not integrate with ADUC llike 2003. You have to use EMC or powershell to create mailboxes.

  • Hello,

    with the correct permissions assigned you can create both user and mailbox with the EMC or the EMS.

  • Agree with above. Also you can not use Exchnage 2003 EMS to create mailbox for 2010 and vice versa.

  • Hello,

    I think Microsoft removed it to implement a correct split permissions model where you can split up the AD admin and the Exchange admin.
