I have an old SBS2003 server box (running SBS 2003 Retail Premium using only DC & Exchange). My intention is that I have a small office with only 3-4 workstations. The server is loud and generates lots of heat so I am considering retiring my SBS box and putting it on my beefed up workstation as a virtual PC or virtual server (Not sure which is better for me).
I use my exchange server to synch to my PDA phone as well as for remote access via the web. That is all I use my SBS server for. Currently I have Virutal PC 2007 running on my Vista 64bit workstation which hosts 2 XP Pro machines. I plan on upgrading my workstation to an 8GB quad core with RAID1 machine running Vista 64bit and Virtual PC 2007 & if needed Virtual Server for my SBS2003.
Any suggestions, comments or tips?
