Hi, I hope somebody could provide some assistance on the following

question. Is the following a supported microsoft setup for SCR, i.e

can you enable SCR with the following setup?

UK - AD Site: ukcompany.local

UKExcSrvA - Mailbox Role

UKExcSrvB - HT & CAS Roles

USA - AD Site: usacompany.local

USAExcSrvA - Mailbox Role

USAExcSrvB - HT & CAS Roles

UK & USA sites are connected via a high speed 100mb WAN connection.

ukcompany.local and usacompany.local AD domains have a trust

established. Both are native 2003 domains. To save money the customer

does not wish to install Exchange enterprise.

Many Thanks

Clinton

A trust relationship "established"? That says differemt forests.

If they're in a single forest then you didn't need to mention anything

about trusts and there's nothing to stop you putting an SCR target in

a different domain.

If they're in two forests then you can't SCR between them.

As Mark says,

if ukcompany.local and usacompany.local are two Domains in a single Forest

then that's fine.

However in this case they aren't, they are two seperate Forests - so it's

not possible.
