There is a limit to the number of groups but I can't find where I had the link.

That said, why do you ask? Do you really need any more than one AG? Usually, delegating permissions is all you need to do. AG's can be more of a pain than a benefit.

There is no logical limit towards the amount of Administrative groups you can create in Exchange 2000 or 2003.

There is however a technical limit in active directory regardng the page size. The maximum page size in AD will only allow a LDAP query to return 1000 objects. If more than 1000 objects exist in AD and you query it no result will be returned because the maximum page size is exceeded.

MS best practice says it's best to have no more than 900 AG's (this is also the value that the exchagne best practice analyzer triggers on) although technically you could go up to 1000 AG's

=> there is no real limpit in exchange, it's an AD limit so it does not matter if it's exchange 2000 or exchange 2003

kind regards,

Tom DecaluwT

Thanks for that Tom. I was sure I had a lower figure but your evidence trumps my memory!
