Adding to the number of RUS's is not a problem.  In fact, in large
environments it's a way to make things faster and more predictable in terms
of updates. However, you really should not put Exchange on a DC if it's not
a GC.  IIRC, this can be problematic to you in the way that Exchange finds
usable Active Directory pieces.  
You can also just configure the RUS you already have to use a different DC
if you wanted to; by default it likely chose the one you are running on.

Hi All
A quick question please. I have a single Windows 2003\Exchange 2003 box that
is a Domain Controller. It holds none of the roles and neither is it a GC
any more. My question is about the RUS. I have had noticed on a number of
occasions that it is slow to update considering our GAL only has about 40+
entries. Are there any issues with adding extra RUS entries to the other two
DC's I have please?
Many thanks in advance.
Paul Lemonidis.
