Distribution List & Other Address Book

By ifah_r ·
Please help to answer 2 impt questions:
I'm asked to create a distribution list of parents with their internet emails. Total 1000 parents in the school for principal to email. How can I go about in creating this list (given .csv file) and to create another address book so that staff will not see/use the DL. We are using Exchange 5.5.

2. I have to upgrade Windows NT 4 to Windows 2000 on the Exchange 5.5 server. This is to prepare for Windows 2000 active directory in months to come. My question, can I just set the Windows 2000 CD on the server to upgrade OS. What is the best solution without affecting the production.

Thanks in advance.

Distribution List & Other Address Book

Create a container put the desired distribution list in the container and assign required permission to the container. As for generating a .csv file you could generate a template from the existing users and fill in the banks after which you then import the .csv file into Exchange.

It is true that you could run upgrade from WIN2K CD to upgrade from WINNT 4 to WIN2K with Exchange 5.5 but a thorough attention should be paid to the Active Directory Schema. You will need to upgrade the PDC to WIN2K the configure Active Directory make sure that you have an NT 4 BDC taken offline for the sake of reversing the process should anything go wrong.

You must configure active Directory on the PDC since you will be running WIN2K in mixed mode until all NT4 PCs are migrated to WIN2K. Also your Exchange server can be left as a member server if you wish.
