I know this is a long message, but please help me!!!
We have 7 regional companies located in 7 countries. Our companyâ€™s
headquarter is in London. All regional companies have their own separate
NT4.0 domain with an Exchange 5.5 Server, which are not in the same forest or
each company have no linkage between them. But the London Headquarter hold
an Exchange 5.5 server, and works as a global hub, which allow each of the
regional companies using a X.400 connector to connect to it. Each of the 7
regional companies creates its own exchange 5.5 site and join to the same
exchange 5.5 organization, under this structure, we share our GAL in this
way. Our headquarter recently planned to moved onto AD domain and
Exchange2003, and We will use MIIS (at last) as a solution to link up all the
7 regional companiesâ€™ exchange 2003 systems and as a result, share the
exchange 2003 GAL.
In my regional company, I migrated the NT Domain to an AD Domain and
currently having a Exchange 2003 coexistence with Exchange5.5 environment.
Everything works fine with the migration process. Since MIIS is not well
planned from the Headquarter London Site yet, so I need to share the existing
GAL from my 5.5 Exchange server.
After the MIIS works, when I wanna convert from the Exchange 2003 mixed mode
to native mode, I need to delete each (7) SRS from each (7) sites. And then
decommission the Exchange Server 5.5 computer in my own site, and finally
delete the ConnectionAgreement from the ADC. There is no problem at this
point. However, I am concerning that I do not have the rights to delete
other (6) SRS and other 5.5 server (which belong to each other (6) regional
companies). So how can I do in order to convert to Native mode after the
MIIS is work? Anyone Please Help? Thanks in advance!
