Unity 2.4.6 does not support any Exchange 2K in the same network.
Be very careful of the Active Directory connections. If the Unity folder from the 5.5 directories gets replicated, AD can trash it and ruin existing Unity.

Re: Unity 2.46 and Exch2000 in mixed mode

Thank you that is great. I need to know exactly why that Unity folder in ex2000 can crash Unity. ADC is supposed to translate all the comunications between 5.5 and 2000 in mixed mode. Is it the custome attributes that Unity adding to mailboxes...Is it that ADC can not translate these custome attributes. I need to explain that to my customer. I need a tech note a doc or something to explain this restriction on Unity 2.46. Is there a way not to replicate the Unity folder to ex2000.

Re: Unity 2.46 and Exch2000 in mixed mode

Anil is technically explaining why it will not work. Cisco and TAC do not support Unity 2.X with Exchange 2000. Period.

Here is the tech tip on Exchange 2000 and 2.X:

If you want Exchange 2000 you need to install Unity 3.0(1).
