We have a setup with Exchange 2007, Sharepoint Services 3.0 - all in the same AD Domain/Forest. Now we have to install sharepoint 2010, but want to do it in a resource forest model. This 'resource forest' model will be forllowed for SharePoint 2010
only, without exchange.
So I have created a new AD domain and installed a SPT 2010 Standard Edition Server, which by itself is working.
Now, I need to create Sharepoint Sites and assign user roles to it. The Users will come from the First AD Domain.
I have read some blogs on this as well. I have understood the concept at high level. My questions are
1) I should be able to deploy users in resource forest model for Sharepoint 2010 only while their mailboxes continue to work in the current default way. Right ?
2) Would the existing users who are having roles in Sharepoint 3.2.0 in the first domain, be able to get roles in SPT 2010 in resource forest ? In other words they enjoy both 3.2.0 and 2010 simultaneously ? Possible ?
3) I definitely want to automate user creation on SPT 2010 using scripting because I don't see any feature like 'linked mailbox' which does this for Exchange resource forest model. I am wondering what is the best sequence to follow for user provisioning
i) I take the user name from the first domain - call it U1
ii) I create a user with similar name
