Exchange 2003 /ChooseDC

Exchange 2003 has a new switch that can be used during installation called “/ChooseDC”. By using the switch the installer can specify the GC to be used for the installation.
The syntax is:
setup.exe /choosedc NameOfDomainControllerToUse

If multiple Exchange servers have to be installed in a short time frame at different sites problems may arise if AD replication does not occur.

To avoid such problems the aforementioned switch can be used to point all Exchange servers ,while being installed,to one GC.
