Exchange 2003
Hi, I've been taked with connecting a few seperate forests together with each forest maintaining control for itself. That bit is ok. However the other part of the senario is that we have all users mailboxes and calendars available at all sites. Has anybody come accross a similar deployment or got any pointers as this is purly in the research stage at the moment.

There can only be one Exchange organization per forest. In this scenario, you can use one of the existing forests or establish a new one as a resource forest for Exchange.

If this is a Windows Server 2003 Active Directory environment thoughout, then you can use forest trusts but each forest would have to be in Windows 2003 Native mode. Otherwise, you will have to configure explicit external domain trusts for each domain.

You are likely to encounter some political infighting determining where Exchange should reside, what policies to put in place, how and by whom it will be managed.
