Exchange Server / Backup web host / Local network
Posted on 2005-04-04
i'm a web developer of a small company in england. we have a server for hosting in the states, and we need to implement a few changes to our network (office), basically i want to set up a backup server in case the one in the states goes down, exchange server for company email, and of course a file server.
we currently have this hardware:
2 Dell server windows 2003 - 1 for Exchange Server and Local Network and the other just for web host backup.
5+ - Workstations
1 - Netgear ADSL modem
1 - Netgear Router
and thats it i need to set up a network that i can do all this. i'm just a bit afraid that i set up anything wrong.
my idea is the following
The server for host backup will not belong to any active directory it will be a DMZ Server.
The other one will be a DC/exchange but my main problem is how to set up DNS properly because some workstation are in other locations and they will need to access exchange.
does anyone have a possible suggestion for how to configure the network?
thanks for your help.
