How to properly use a server?
Posted on 2006-06-11
I have three servers. Currently, most of everything on the network is being run by one server (we grew rapidly), but I will be implementing two other servers: one for Exchange, the other for file, print, and sql servers. I understand that you shouldn't use the main server (which is the pdc by the way) for normal use, but what's a good recomendation for applications to run and not run on a primary server? Should Office be loaded? Should normal applications be run or should the server be used as little as possible? Basically, what's the ideal application/service load for a primary server?
OS is Windows Server 2003 Standard.
