    Well, I have just taken the past few days off studying after passing 'the beast'. But I have already started to feel the itch to start reading the 70-284 Exchange Server book!

    Just wondering what sort of lab to implement, I can run a total of 3 Servers OK in my lab, anything more than that and my laptop starts to struggle (especially as Vista is my OS).

    Anyway, I was thinking as follows. Role back to my lab for 70-290 studying, which was:

    Server01 Roles

    Domain Controller, DNS, DHCP, Terminal Server & File Server

    Server02 Roles

    WSUS, Print Server & IIS

    and create a brand new Server 03 as a Exchange Server

    Will this be enough?

    Any thoughts or comments would be appreciated :D

    Having a dedicated Exchange server 2003 for the 70-284 exam would be a must and also complimenting this with CBT Nugget video's. Best wishes:) as am sure you'd do well.

    Pehaps make server 2 an additional Exchange Server so you can configure it as a front end server or even put it in a different subnet and route email between the two exchange servers. 8)

    Good idea Sparky!

    Think I will get everything installed, deployed and working then add that into the equation 8)

    Just finished deploying Server03 as my new Exchange Server.

    Installed IIS, NNAT, SMTP, ASP.NET then ran

    Forest & Domain Prep and installed Exchange.

    Not sure why, but I really enjoyed updating all of my 60 different 'Employee Accounts' to have a Mailbox with Exchange Tasks, it made me feel all warm inside :D

    Anyway, time to perform a backup.
