Parent/Child domain accounts and Exchange.

Tony C.

Hello,





We've just added a child domain to our windows 2000 AD. Currently our
Exchange server resides on a parent domain server and we wish to keep it
this way. Is there a way to move some of our user accounts from the parent
domain to the new child domain while keeping their email on the exchange
server? And if possible, How? Thank you in advance.

For Exchange, it doesn't matter where user accounts reside, in which domain.
You can modify the domain where they get their email address by modifying
recipient polices in Exchange. You can leave the only one recipient policy
which assigns by default email address similar to (e-mail address removed) to all
users regardless of their domain membership.

Thanks for the reply, Ho do I move a user account from the parent domain to
the child domain without recreating the user's mailbox?

You do not have to move the account, as I told you already. You just need to
modify the email address of that account, or modify recipient policy, if you
want consistent email addresses for all accounts in all domains.

I believe he still wants to move the users to the child domain even though
the email address issue is resolved.

I would then suggest that you look at ADMT v2 to do this.
