Read-Only Domain Controller Issues
Exchange has caught a lot of crap for publishing the fact that it doesn't work in branch office locations where only Windows Server 2008 read-only domain controllers (RODCs) are available. Exchange simply requires read-write domain controllers. It's a fact.
However, it's been a poorly kept secret that Windows XP and Windows Server 2003 don't work well either in branch locations with only RODCs. You have needed Vista or Windows Server 2008 in those locations for all things to be happy.
Until now: Description of the Windows Server 2008 read-only domain controller compatibility pack for Windows Server 2003 clients and for Windows XP clients. KB 944043 fixes many of the issues with Windows XP (service pack 2 or service pack 3 only) and Windows Server 2003 (service pack 1 and service pack 2).
Until next time...
