What about running a backup solution on the exchange server. I have a potential client that is running everything on a cloned server. Granted it has some fairly good hardware. But I am concerned about AD, Symantec, Proprietary software and Exchange all being on one server.  Yes, all data is stored on this server. As best I can tell, they are backing up to an external hard drive. The server  has two hard drives but I don't think they are mirrored. Disk 0 is  372.61 GB and has two partitions.  C: 78 GB and E:  294 GB  Disk 1 has 465 GB and two partitions F: 78 GB and G: 294 GB.

You would need to worry about available free hard disk space, available I/O for all of your processes and applications as well as backup and recovery planning, but it can be done if your hardware can handle it, but I wouldn't recommend it.
