SBS premium with navision??


I would like to get some advice for a new installation, this is the situation:

- company has 40 users, 25 users use navision.
- they want to implement a sbs premium to act as exchange sevrer, data server, and also .... navision

The premium edition has sql installed, that will be used for the navision databases.
The clients will connect via a sperate TS server to the navision sql database on the 1st server.

Will it be possible to run sbs premium with exchange, data server, printerver, and navision server?

The server will have a dual cpu with 4GB ram.
OS will be on a Raid 1
navision db will also be on a Raid 1, because Raid 5 is not that good for databases.

Is this a good solution? The company doesn't want to give any more money for a 3rd server .... :/

It depend of the stress of your server ( do you have big usage users ?  do they have a lot of documents, modify them a lot, big Exchange usage, etc... )

what I see you don't have any choice.

Conclusion :

In you place, I'l go for it, and you should be prepare for any eventuality, be sure to configure your "performance log and Alerts" to monitor your server and see if it is stress out by all this.  do it on your other server too.

whit the statistic that you will build, you will be able to balance all your services trough out your server.  like move you print server and data server else wher for exemple.

The configuration is certainly supported.  I have installed Great Plains on SBS's without any problems at all... but not with 25 users.  So, I would agree that you need to monitor and be prepared.  

With 4GB of RAM, you are at the maximum that is allowed with SBS.  But it should be plenty... again depending on actual use.
