Exchange 2010 SP1 Multi-Tenant (Step 1 of 3)

Finally Microsoft has came out with Exchange server that could
support multiple organizations without the need of HMC or manually
making changes in ADSIEDIT or Active Directory. I have actually not
used HMC before but found that trying to segregate address list and
GALs manually in Exchange 2007 was a pain.

What is not available

  • Exchange Management Console

  • Public Folders

  • Unified Messaging Server role (can install on different machine)

  • GalSync

  • Federation

  • Business-to-Business features such as cross-premises message
    tracking and calendar sharing

  • IRM

  • Outlook 2003 support

  • Edge Transport Server role

  • Same forest upgrade from Exchange 2007

  • Resource forest

  • Parent-child domains

  • Discontiguous namespace

  • Disjoint namespace

I know that most get upset at the Exchange Management Console not
being available anymore but I find that the shell commands are really
simple and easy (especially with the help of Google and Microsoft
help pages).

You can still easily create new users/mailboxes using the Exchange
Console Panel through OWA. We will get to that in a little bit.
