Managing 2003 Exchange attribute in 2008 AD RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    We just installed server 2008 R2 as a DC in our Domain.  We have few 2003 DC as well and we are planning to phase them out.  One thing I am unable to do in 2008 ADUC is manage Exchange attributes, they simply not there.  Do I need to install something?  We are running Exchange 2003.

     

    Thanks

  • Back in the day you would simply install the Exchange management tools onto your W2K3 DCs and that would generate the tabs and views that you seek. However, I wouldn’t do this in your current environment. Exchange 2003 is a ways out of support and I don’t think you should try and pollute your new DCs with legacy software. Use ADUC on your Exchange 2003 server and get off it and onto 2010 at your earliest convenience.
