This topic discusses the features and functionality of the Microsoft Exchange Server 2007 administration interfaces.
In Exchange 2007, Active Directory Users and Computers is replaced by the Exchange Management Console and the Exchange Management Shell for most management tasks. However, you can still use Active Directory Users and Computers to manage server objects.
Exchange Management Console
You can use the improved Exchange Management Console (formerly Exchange System Manager) to successfully administer and manage the Exchange Server 2007 and Exchange Server 2003 computers in your organization.
For more information about the Exchange Management Console, see Using the Exchange Management Console.
Exchange Management Shell
The Exchange Management Shell is a new Exchange-specific command-line interface. It is similar to other command-line interfaces, such as the Windows Script Host (WSH). You can use the Exchange Management Shell to run a single command or a series of multiple commands for managing your Exchange Server 2007 servers and objects.
For more information about the Exchange Management Shell, see Using the Exchange Management Shell.
