I need to setup a new exchange server and need a little hand with specifying the hardware.
I work for a college and the server will need to support
100 Admin staff
100 Teaching staff
So I need 200 Imap mailboxes.
Could anyone give a estimate of the amount of disk space an average an Imap mailbox may require I.e. How many users does your system support and how much space does that take up.
Also I need a hand with the setup for an exchange server. I assume as the data / configuration is so tightly bound to the operating system (Server 2003) do we naturally treat the exchange part of the system as part of the operating system.
Normally I would specify for a file server
Scsi Raid 1 for the operating system partitioned to
C: the OS
D: Sysvol ( as recommended for speed purposes, I think )
Scsi Raid 5 for the file storage
As exchange is a slightly different beast I am not sure of the best way to specify the disk system, I am guessing at
Scsi Raid 5 for the whole system partitioned to
c: the OS
D: Sysvol (as above)
E: the exchange data store
As allways your comments and suggestions are highly appreciated.
