Here is Scenario

I have AD in one server(Windows enterprise sp2).For exchange i installed one more windows ent sp2 in another server and added to the domain(It's called member server).Then i tried to install Exchange Ent on that one.When i try to run domainprep I got error as "known compatibility issue with version of Windows".I did domainprep and forestprep in AD server.I think we suppose to run domain prep on second server.Not forestprep.Isn't it?
For one of my another client i installed AD and Exchange on single server with the same source(CD) it worked fine.

hi mate,

if you are installing the exchange on the same domain then you don't require to run the domainprep once again i.e prepare AD.

It seems like windows Server comptability issue.
What is OS version and is it a warning or error message?

Actually, it's a known issue that you get that message.  You can safely ignore and continue with the installation.

I tried with another version it took.Now it's working fine.I read in an article that we have to run domainprep wen we try to install new exchange in member server.You mean to say if it is member server we should not run domainprep.May i correct?

And one more thing, from here i planed to install another Xchange server as member server and make it has FE server(for OWA).How can i accomplish it? If i chose install exchange in another pc in list of setup option.Does it work?

Forestprep and domainprep need to be run once in preparation of installing Exchange. All that does is add the Exchange attributes to Active Directory. Once you do it, it doesn't need to be done again (although it won't hurt anything if you do).

The server on which you run forestprep and domainprep needs to belong to the domain (member server).

Creating an FE is simple. Install Exchange. In the ESM, open the properties of your server. On the General tab there is a checkbox that says make this server an FE.

Prabhu,

An FE allows you to have a single access point to Exchange - the typical applications where this is useful is OWA and ActiveSync where you want control over where outside connections can reach.  An FE allows you to close outside connections to all BE servers.

Server access from inside your network typically isn't as tightly restricted.  What requirements do you have to prevent inside users from directly connecting to Exchange?

Protect against what?

I don't understand why you think the mail should automatically go to the FE server.  The FE server is a client-side feature, not a routing feature.  You can certainly include it in your routing configuration, but that is coincidental and not automatic.
quote:

I don't understand this statement either.  What client are you using to access Email?  Outlook?  Something else?  Internally Outlook will connect directly with the mailbox server.  Externally an FE server allows you to point clients to a single connection point without having to know which BE server the mailbox exists on.  After connecting, the messages do not transfer from BE to FE, the FE is only the access point.  The messages remain on the BE.

Again, I don't understand what you think should be happening.

Hello all ,

Noob question regarding the install of a FE exchange server.
I would like to put my FE in a DMZ but when I install I have to be a member of the domain. How do I do this ? Install on a member server and afterwards put it into the perimeter ? isn't this a security issue ?

Regards

You are absolutely correct about the security issues you raise.

The answer is that you don't put it in the DMZ. You create a domain member server inside your network, install Exchange, check the box to make it a Front End server.

Then you create/modify a firewall rule to only allow port 80 (HTTP) and/or port 443 (HTTPS) through to that single server.
