    Re: Script to change user email in AD (or Exchange)

    Would I be right in thinking that for a single Exchange box to work across two domains, the domains must be in the same forest? If this is not the case, I would be interested to know how users from a domain in a seperate forest can use an exchange box in another (without duplicate user accounts anyway).

    Sorry for slightly off topic.

    I had fun during the last half term going through the 81 pages of how to change your domain name for this very reason.

    I've always used it because: Windows 2000 loved to attempt to send ddns updates to isp dns servers, it was default in Windows 2000 server, its still default suffix on 2003 server. I didn't have any Macs.

    Then last January I got my own Mac Mini, I have .local at home, I found this issue. I then realised we wanted to get a mac server and suite at school, this is when you hit the 'gaaaaaaaaah' stage.

    As exchange is only *about* to be installed on the domain, I was able to sucessfully rename the domain, not too painfully (apart from double reboots and printers (and created hosts). This turned out to be an excercise in why I like dhcp so much. Reboot twice, host dissapears from .local and appears in new domain (.school here). A single DC helped too (I know - but I have new servers coming online soon)

    2003 sp1, default choice for domain is still organisationname.local :P
