Hi one of my customers deals in insurance and now has to conform to FSA standards. This means simply he must have an off-site online backup. Basically if the Master Server goes off-line then the slave server must take over. I know i must use clustering or DFS but not sure if it is possible in SBS as It will not allow another DC within its domain. The customer owns two sites within 1 mile line of site, I have the wireless products to connect both sites together at 54MB. Just need to know the ins and outs of howto setup the server

many thanks

SBS supports multiple DCs, only the SBS DC MUST be the FSMO Masters owner (they cannot be transferred).  You also need Enterprise Server to Cluster unless you are using a third party product, so you'd have to buy two servers to set this up, and the licenses.
