I plan to size servers and their roles for company (about 100 useres) now all is on one sbs2000 server.
I want to have: Two Domain conntrolers ( win2008 server std, exchange2007, and etc.(wsus, sharepoint services, Office comm. server)
I can't use EBS becouse in future i need to establish trust reletionships with others domains.
This is what i am thinking of (with using 3 physical machins: ISA(3 nics, DC with exch, DC1)
| | internal NIC2 -> LAn clients
internet ->external NIC 1 | ISA 2006 |
| | internal NIC3 -> LAN for servers (w2k8 DC with exch2007,w2k8 DC1)
in this case i have servers protected from both internet and local and i think is a good solution.
BUT in this a) ISA is very sensitive, what if isa fails? b) is in that possibility to doing exchange cluster without adding phisical machines?
i have read about instaling exch on DC.
i am not looking for general solution but a good advice and right path to future planing
What are Your suggestions mayby different structure??
maybe virtualize someting in this?
unfortunately this is a trial account sa propably i can't post it back to your posts
