How to add a second exchange server in one domain

By dfdemo ·

Please help...Our company has exchange server 2000, and we decided to add another exchange server this time exchange server 2003.

After installing the exchange server 2003, I was hoping to see the additional mail server in my exchange system manager but I only see one server.

During installation, it did not ask me if I want to join a domain... Please help if I miss anything.

... has this covered I'm sure.

The Exchange setup will not ask you if you want to join a domain. When you install Exchange 2003, the server you're installing onto should already be a member server of the same AD containing the Exchange 2000 server. Then on the schema master of your AD, run setup /domainprep (I think) from the Exchange 2003 CD and then put the CD in your new server to install exchange 2003. Again, this is covered I'm sure at and and many other sites.

Post back if you have specific questions.
