Adding member servers to Small Business Server 2003 R2 Premium
Posted on 2007-03-27
We have 1 SBS 2003 R2 Premium server in operation. I am trying to setup a second server for redundancy purpose and not having to depend on just 1 server (God forbid).
1) When adding member servers to Small Business Server 2003 R2 Premium, what type of servers can I use? Can I use servers with W2K3 R2 Enterprise and add as a member or does it have to be the same type of Operating Systems (SBS 2003 R2 Premium).
2) What would be the best way for me to replicate the first server to the second server. SBS does not allow trusting between Domain Controllers, right?
3) The reason for having the second server is also for the second server to server as Secondary controller and Secondary DNS. Can I set this up under an SBS 2003 network?
4) I see the NLB option in SBS, does this mean I can just configure another box of SBS and let them load balance each other? If so, how would I go about configuring it.
Thank you in advance for your help.
