I have an integration with an existing Exchange site and need to know the pros and cons (if any) of creating the Unity server as a member server or as a PDC with trust relationships established. For staging purposes it is easier for me to build the Unity server and test the Call Manager in house before the actual customer site deployment. This would not be possible with a member server as Exchange requires the NT server be established with a DC before it is installed. <br><br>Any feedback would be appreciated.<br><br><br><br>Brian Carscadden<br>SE Manager/Sr. System Engineer<br>CCNA, CCDA, CIPT, MCP<br>TransNet Corporation<br>908 253-0500
Only install as a PDC when you have no other choice. If it's a completely stand alone system (i.e. not working with an existing Exchange site) this is OK, but if you're wanting to do a UM installation, never install us as a PDC with a trust.
Trusts are flaky and there's a lot of extra overhead you buy as a PDC that you don't have as a member server.
I can't reccomend the member server route too strongly.
