I have a customer who has a dell Poweredge T605 server. It's got dual quad core 2.3 GHZ processors, 8 GB RAM, Raid 5 hot swapable drives running server 2008 Enterprise. It is running Hyper-V with 3 virtual machines. 1 is a 2008 server running exchnage 2007 and I have 2 running 2003 server. 1 of the 2003 servers is running blackberry enterprise software and the other is running a tax software.

When I first set this up, it was intended to just run a small insurance business with about 5 users. About a month ago they sprung upon me that they are expanding the business and expect to have about 15-20 people doing tax returns and they want them to all access the same tax server remotely.

I turned the tax server into a terminal server and assigned all users to a group and locked it down via GPO. The connection is a regular time warner business class connection and the virtual server is only running with 2 gigs of memory at the moment. The customer just ordered another 16 gogs of memory which I plan on dedicating solely to the Tax server and that will free up an additional 2 that I am currently running on it to throw at the exchange box or the PDC.

So finally on to my question. with this given scenerio, is there any changes that could/should be made prior to moving forward before we get into the middle of tax season?
