Install multiple SBS

I am looking at adding a second small business server to a small remote office I have. I realize that I can only have one domain controller with SBS, but am I allowed to have a second “member” server in that domain which is also SBS? Does that violate any licensing or will it even let me?

I don’t need the other server, but they want to deploy the blackberry enterprise server express which has been told to me not to install directly on the exchange server. This server would only serve as that purpose, so I cannot possibly justify spending the extra money on the standard version of 2003.

Windows Server 2003

All I know about the price is that on Dell's site, if I choose Small Business Server standard, it is a 300.00 discount over 2003 R2 standard.

Is that not the way you understand it?

Thanks for the info.

Please accept my apologies, you are correct - 2003 standard is cheaper than 2003 SBS

I don't understand why or how, but that is how it is.

Anyway, the problem still remains, sbs isnt going to work.  The cheapest you could do is try to buy a 2nd hand copy of 2000 server...

Sorry for the confusion, that has me baffled now!


Thanks for the info. I had a feeling this wouldnt work! Such is life.
