Configuring Exchange Server 2003 Administrative Groups


This topic provides you with information about creating and managing Exchange Server 2003 Administrative Groups.

Displaying Administrative Groups

After installing Exchange in an Exchange 2003 or Exchange 2000 organization, Exchange System Manager does not automatically display administrative groups and routing groups. You must configure your Exchange organization to display administrative groups. After you have configured this setting, you can view the Administrative Groups container and create additional administrative groups for your organization. For detailed instructions, see How to Display Administrative Groups.


If you install Exchange 2000 (or later) in an Exchange 5.5 site, Exchange enables administrative and routing groups by default. In this case, every Exchange 5.5 site appears as an administrative group.
