CC3 Server 2003 to Server 2008
I have a CC3 network (for admin and curriculum) with 6 DC's, 1 Exchange, 1 Sims server.
We are going vanilla with server 2008 (virtualised). We have good scope for current & future servers.
We want to do a staged approach i.e do admin first then move the various curriculum roles over.
My biggest stumbling block is exchange as I need to leave it referencing the server 2003 / CC3 Active Directory but also need it to see my new domain on server 2008.
So the Exchange server remains a member of the CC3 network for now serving the CC3 student Mail but also serves the new admin network at the same time.
I plan to set up a trust between the 2 domans but how do I get Exchange (2003) to work with my new AD in server 2008 as well.

Seems like a better place to go than one alternative I can think of.

You don't. I believe E2K7 is supposed to be a bit more promiscuous, but E2K3 is a single-forest kind of app.

However if your admin staff keep their accounts on the CC3 domain then they can connect their Outlooks to mailboxes for those accounts on the Exchange server. I'm sure that works, but it shouldn't be difficult for you to test and prove that ahead of time. Unless you have zillions of admin staff it won't be that difficult to maintain.

not too sure how RM CC works but can't you replace the various servers with 2008 in the same domain and therefore exchange *should* still work as permissions and user accounts will stay the same
