David, I would get your head around the AD side first. Most Sys Admin guys want to get the AD side nutted out first. If you can show knowledge on Multiple Trees, domains and sites etc, the exchange part becomes far easier to understand. As you know with your experience Exchange it is reliant on AD for its objects and if you are clear on how AD replicates and best practice designs, then you can start to look at the exchange sites, back-end, front-end and bridgeheads and all that wonderful stuff. That's how I increased my knowledge and seem to be fairly happy with larger installs now.. Cheers Brian >>> ddellanno@xxxxxxxxxx 6/05/2003 5:00:55 pm >>> Hi everyone, For the past three years I have been exposed to Exchange 2000 & Windows 2000 and had the pleasure to manage it in many small businesses. The environments that I have experienced in are only a single domain, single forest, single exchange server. I guess this also goes without saying that the active directory which has not been utilized to its full functionality since there were no demand at the time to scale to multiple sites that I had work for. My question to you guys, how do I spin my experience in such a limited environment to excite the big companies in the industry that have larger scale environments? and what can I say to them if they ask about replication experience or other features of exchange that I have not yet been exposed to only because of the limited demand of the environment? I would never mislead anyone of my experience but I would like to know how to go about this in an interview? Many thanks for your input. Regards, _____ David V.
