Windows 2008 R2 combining roles


Hello I am installing a Windows 2008 standard R2 server in a small organisation, 10 users

I know it is not recommended but I would like this server to be 1) AD server, 2) Exchange 2010 (10 users) 3) TSE server (for 2 remote users)

-  Should these 3 roles work together? (although not recommended I cannot install a second server in such a small organisation)

- Any recommendation ?

Thank you

1 and 2 will coexist happily

however I need to strongly discourage you about have TSE with it, you will not only degrade the performance of your server but expose it to risk of users and you will soon end up with a server and or exchange that is crashing. bring any PC for TSE doens't have to be a server

Technically, these three roles can be installed on the same server.

Why don't you install SBS2011 for such a small Org?

doesn't matter if you install SBS or not I wouldn't advise you to put TSE on the same server, get a small computer and use it as tse server

The 2 remote users can RDP onto the server. Otherwise just give them Outlook anywhere.
