Help recommend server setup
Posted on 2004-08-05
We are purchasing all new servers and I'm trying to think about what the best setup would be...
(server 1) Application server [has to be all by itself]
(server 2) exchange, wins, pdc, dns, dhcp
(server 3) terminal server
(server 4) application server, dns server, file server, print server, dhcp, wins, bdc
How would you suggest seperating out these servers? It's okay to add more servers. I was thinking probably 6 or so.
I know I'd like to seperate them out as much as possible to provide the best performance. I am going to be running W2K3 server and enterprise, as well E2K3 enterprise.
I've got a few ideas, but I'd like to know what you guys think. It's always best to get more then one opinion ;-)
