You need to have the exchange admin tools installed on your machine in
order to see the exchange tabs through ADUC. I assume that you will not
have this installed on a DC. However, it will be installed on an
exchange server
You can verify the schema replication, firstly through replmon and
checking on the updates that are still pending replication. Secondly be
checking the config container on several of the domain controllers to
ensure that they are holding the correct exchange info. Second way is a
bit long winded though. 
You will also notice a similar behaviour on workstations. If you install
the admin tools on a workstation you will see the exchange tabs via
ADUC. On a machine at the side of it without ESM installed there will be
no tabs for exchange.

Subject: [exchangelist] Active Directory Exchange Schema Updates

I am currently upgrading our exchange 5.5 site to Exchange 2003. 
After installing the active directory connector and running the
connection agreement wizard I notice two things. When I examine the
properties of users in "active directory users and groups" on my
prospective exchange 2003 server the users have all the new exchange
attributes. However if I examine the properties of users in "active
directory users and groups" on a different domain controller the
properties do not have the extra exchange tabs. Its looks like the
schema has not been extended for these other domain controllers. However
if I go into "active directory sites and services" and force replication
I get no errors.
So I am worried that in some sense my schema has not been replicated.
Also when I hit verify after running the connection agreement wizard it
tells me I have users still to replicate to the exchange 5.5 directory.
Do I have to worry about this as all the users in my cn=users don't need
mail boxes and I think these are the users that haven't been written to
the exchange 5.5 directory.
