Cross Domain Exchange Server
We currently have 2 domains in a single forest.
We have a domain trust setup between the 2 domains (one curric - students/teachers, and one admin). No outgoing traffic can access the admin domain from the curriculum domain, but admin can gain access to curriculum shares/servers etc. All confidential info is held on the admin domain.
We have also recently put in a 2007 exchange server, and are going to roll out OWA to teaching staff, since they use shared mandatory profiles, hotdesk and have locked down accounts etc etc.
We also have admin staff who generally use the same machine all day. I would like to add their accounts on their domain to the exchange server, but when creating mailboxes, I cannot access the admin domain to add the admin users. Is there anyway to do this, or is my domain trust stopping this happening? Can I add some sort of server exception as part of the trust?
A simple fix so far (which we have implemented) is to create another account with the same username on our curric domain, and then create the mailbox from there. The problem with this, is there is a high chance that the admin user could forget their password, and we would have to reset two accounts with passwords on BOTH the domains - tbh a pain...
I am also torn as to whether to try and convince SMT to migrate to ONE domain, the curric domain. This would make life much easier for IT support, but would need the whole network sorting out in terms of security, and ACLS on shares.
Just looking for some advice really...
Thanks for reading my essay!:spam1:
