This is my first post on Experts-Exchange... so here it goes!
My company just purchased two Dell R710 servers and a Dell PowerVault MD3000 for a two node cluster. The MD3000 acts as the central storage for clustering. We have been running on a single PowerEdge 1800. While we are upgrading servers, I also wanted to tweak a few areas of our network.
We will be running several virtual machines (hyper-v) to handle Active Directory, DHCP, DNS, File Server, and Print Server. (We are already running all of these roles on our older server).
Currently, we are using a Linksys RV082 to handle our routing. We have two ISPs coming into the building. One is a T1 line (for reliability) and the other is a Broadband connection (for speed). The primary connection is the broadband and we auto failsafe over the the T1 when the broadband goes down, and then the router fails back to the broadband when it is available again.
I would like to use a virtual machine running Server 2008 R2 as our router, but I'm just not sure where to start. I want the same type of functionality that I have now (with the failsafe ISP setup), but I want to run it on Server 2008 R2.
Does this sound like a recommended setup? Where do I start?
I haven't been able to find any documentation on this online; 500 points to the person that helps the most!
