Most of your answers are at the Microsoft web site.  The big thing is to
backup because your going to be altering the AD schema when adding
Exchange.  So do a good work of reading first, because the order of
setup is critical for you.

Subject: [exchangelist] New Exchange 2003 server in existing AD/DC


One of my customers has a current, active AD and DC already installed
and running in their organization but they do not have an Exchange
Now they want to add an Exchange 2003 Standard server.  They want the
Exchange server to fit into the existing AD.

I am used to setting up a stand-alone Exchange server in a brand new
environment where I also set up the AD and DC on the same server but not
this scenario with an existing and operational AD.  So what is the best
way to install Exchange 2003 in this scenario?  How do I enable the new
Exchange server in the existing AD?  Once it is in the AD, how do I
mail-enable selected users so their email will be going through
There will be about 350 users, is there a way to script this?
