3.4. Exchange Server Policies

It is possible to define a large number of security settings in Windows 2000, including auditing, security options, registry settings, file permissions and services. In Security Operations for Microsoft Windows 2000 Server we make suggestions for many of these settings and these recommendations do not need to be changed for Exchange 2000. The main area where additional settings are applied is for services, although we also make some file permission changes.

As they reside in OUs below the Member Servers OU, the Exchange servers inherit settings defined in the Member Server Baseline Policy. The Exchange policies modify those settings in two ways. First, some services that are not required for basic Windows 2000 functionality are needed for successful Exchange 2000 operations. Second, Exchange 2000 introduces a number of extra services, not all of which are required to allow the Exchange servers to function in their particular roles.
