Server 2003 General Qestions
Posted on 2004-04-29
I'm making this a 500 point question because I want to ask a few easy questions all related to each other.
I have a pre-installed copy of server 2003, its for a small business (<10 users), its has an 80gb disk which is currently partitioned:-
C:\ 10gb system
D:\ 70gb data
I'd like to run a mail server from it and be able to roll out software like Office.
First question, what would the most suitable partitioning system be? in the past I done the following:-
-AD Database 1gb
-AD Logs 1gb
-Software installs 5gb
-Home & Profiles 10gb
However this has been on Windows 2000, and without exchange.
Second, Initially I was told we had small business server 2003, which as I understand has exchange built in. I'd like to run a mail server, and when I click 'configure my server' I can install a 'mail server (pop3, smtp) module, what are the differences between that and Exchange?, do they both involve MX records pointing at my private ip?
If I do system properties it say 'Microsoft Server 2003 Standard Edition', thats not small buisness server is it? would I be better off with SBS 2003?
