I have one Exchange 2003 server in my organization. I want to install a second Exchange server. How can I install this second server? Do I need domain and forest preparation during the installation of second server? Is a routing group necessary for this single Exchange server?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

If the Exchange server is going into the same Active Directory Domain, then it is real easy. Just run the Exchange setup on the new machine and when you get to the point where it asks do you want to join an existing domain or create a new one, just choose the join option.

Once it is complete you will see under Exchange System Manager the two servers. You can then freely move mailboxes between servers and setup Public Folder Replication.

    This is absolutely right. No, you do not need to run /forestprep and /domainprep for additional installations of Exchange Server, unless you are installing it into a new domain that was not existent at the time that Exchange Server was installed initially.
