As far as my understanding goes:

Step 1 - Create a Reseller Organization (Usually Your Organization as the Hosted Service Provider)

The Reseller Organization is the Top-Level Organization in the front-end CP and is provided with full visibility and access to all objects which are created beneath it by its Admin/s.

Step 2 - Create a Business Organization once you have signed up your first corporate client

Now that you (as the reseller) has signed up your first "Corporate" client you log into the control panel and create a Business Organization for them along with an Administrative Login (the Business Org administrator).

The Business Org Administrator then has the capacity to Administer ALL aspects of hist organization ONLY while the Reseller Administrator has the priviledge of managing the Reseller Organization and ALL Business/Consumer Organizations below him.

Step 3 - Someone would like to White-Label your services to the General Public / End-User

Enter the Consumer Organization, the consumer Organization must fall under a Reseller Organization and would be geared towards providing Business Class Messaging & Collaboration Solutions to Individual End-Users who are not associated with any Business/Corporate and so not mind sharing the same address space as many others.

The Consumer Org Administrator would have administrative Access over only his "Consumers"

The IIW Tenant model is similar in concept to the Consumer Model with one or two added benefits, please see the attached table.

In the CP the Organizations would appear as follows:

Reseller Org

|   
|- Reseller Admin
|
| ------------  
|-Business Org
| ------------
|   |- Business Admin
|   |- User 1
|   |- User 2
|
|
| ------------  
|-Consumer Org
| ------------
|   |- Consumer Admin
|   |- Consumer 1
|   |- Consumer 2
|
|
| ------------  
|-IIW Reseller
| ------------
|   |- IIW Reseller Admin
|   |- IIW Tenant 1
|   |- IIW Tenant 2
This has just come from the bits and pieces I have been able to find online & trying to add certain Organizations at various levels in the Hosted Directory.

If anyone feels/knows different, please feel free to correct it where ever I may have made a mistake.

Hey Guys,

Small correction to the above - Microsoft have come back to me with the following tree structure in the Active Directory:

Reseller Org OU

|
|- Reseller Admin
|
| ---------------
|-Business Org OU
| ---------------
| |- Business Admin
| |- User 1
| |- User 2
|
|
| ---------------
|-Consumer Org OU
| ---------------
| |- Consumer Admin
| |- Consumer 1
| |- Consumer 2
|
|
| ---------------
|-IIW Reseller OU
| ---------------
| |- IIW Reseller Admin
| |
| | ---------------
| |- IIW Tenant 1 OU
| | ---------------
| | |-IIW Tenant 1 User A
| | |-IIW Tenant 2 User B
| |
| | ---------------
| |- IIW Tenant 1 OU
| | ---------------
| | |-IIW Tenant 1 User A
| |

Hope this makes sense to everyone out there.

Ok, very good. This was very close to my understanding as well. But does anyone agree that the model is flawed to begin with? Why would I want (as a hosting service provider) to set up a "fake" domain to administer my accounts (biz orgs and resellers)? Seems like an administrative nightmare from my point of view. If possible, would like to eliminate this "need" in project.
