Can Exchange 2000 be installed on a non-PDC Win2k server?

Can Exchange server 2000 be installed on a Windows 2000 server machine without the machine being a primary domain controller (not an Advanced Server or an NT machine just an ordinary Win2k server)? As long as the machine is a member of an Active Directory domain, yes. Exchange does not need to be installed on a Windows 2000 domain controller, and best practices actually dictate that you avoid this if possible. The best deployments have Exchange 2000 on its own dedicated member server in an AD domain.
