I am looking for a litte advice.
I have 3 sites at the moment.
Site 1 - Head Office
2 x Server 2008 R2 DC's (DHCP, DNS, AD role)
1 x Exchange 2010 installed on 2008 R2
Site 2 - Office
1 x Server 2003 R2 DC (DHCP, DNS, AD Role)
Site 3 - Office
1 x Server 2008 R2 DC (DHCP, DNS, ADRole)
Each site is connected via LAN to LAN VPN and replication etc seems to working ok.
A user can log on to any office and access resources etc.
My knowledge of DNS is limited, I added the DNS role at remote sites after Head Office was working and it seemed to populate itself.
Clients at each site use their locan DNS server as primary and remote one as secondary.
When I install exchange do I need to do anything special to allow users at remote site to access their mail boxes etc.
Currently at remote site when setting up outlook, when I put Exchange server name in and mail box and select "check name" it cant connect/find exachange server.
I can ping it and I have tried putting IP in but to no avail.
It is one single domain accross each site which was setup with exchange at head office first them other sites were added.
Our email is still outsourced so I am just trying to get this working before bringing it in-house.
Clients located in head office seem to be able to access exchange with no issue but remote ones cant.
