one of our clients is deploying new hardware to their office. they are an accounting firm with 10 staff.
they have purchased 2 PHYSICAL servers.
what they want to be able to do is deploy a total of 3 servers, one sbs 2008 prem, one 2008 std 32bit edition for SQL use and one 2003 std for terminal server logon.
what i am struggling with is HOW to do this?
i have read and read and read all diffrent senarios and ways of doing it but what i really want to accomplish is this.
1 PHYSICAL Server Running.
- SBS 2008
- 2008 STD for SQL
1 PHYSICAL Server Running
- 2003 Std. R2.
is this possible? if so, should the SBS be in a virtual enviroment or should the 2008 std. be in the virtual enviroment?
the main goal is to have a Terminal server ( the 2003), an SBS Server( sbs is x64) and a virtualised 2008 std ( in x86) for sql and LOB apps.
n.b. LOB apps must be x86, they are not supported in x64 mode.
we own the licences for all the above software and it can be instaled in any config, both servers have 2x nics, 8gb ram and quat xeon processors.
