Win2k SBS - Setup Help
Posted on 2004-10-27
First time setting up Win2k server from scratch. I just need to ask some advice on what order to install things and also any tips you can give me
First off, i have a Compaq Proliant DL380 G2 server. I have upgraded the storage for 2x18GB (OS and apps) and 2x72GB (Storage). I have created 2 logical drives for each set of disks in RAID1.
I have partitioned the drives. 18GB - 2 partitions. small one for the Compaq tools for emergency boot etc. Then the rest for the OS and apps. On the 72GB i have just created one large partition.
I have installed windows 2k SBS and all the appropriate drivers.
Now, i need some advice in what order to install my apps.
I have the following i wish to setup
Sophos Enterprise Manager / AV
Antigen for exchange
Veritas 9.1 backup exec premium
Then theres updates.
Can anyone advise me in what order i should install the above programs and any updates.
I always get worried installing the updates. Should i just stick on the latest service pack before installing any software, then get the critical updates after? Then go ahead and install software?
I would assume the SQL and Exchange would be installed when the SBS part is setup.
I would be very greatful if someone would advise me in what order to install the above programs and updates and to give me any tips before i start.
Thankyou very much
