Office Communications Server 2007 Enterprise installation?

Last Modified: 2013-11-29
Hi All,

I have beent tasked with the creation of an Office Communications Server 2007 installation. My resources for this projects are extermely and I mean extremely limited. I have a VM host server on which I have created a VM with 4GB Ram, and 200GB HDD.

I installed Windows Server 2003 64bit, ran dcpromo, DNS to setup an Active Directory instance and installed SQL (I know this is not recommended on a Domain Controller). All my other servers physical or VM's are all built on a WORKGROUP. I know this seems ridiculous, but this is what I have to go with.

I know nothing about Office Communicator and am wondering if it is possible to actually create this scenario on a single box or if I am going to require back end servers etc.  

All and any suggestions are most welcome at this point. Thanks.
