Is it safe to install Exchange 2010 Edge Transport server on the same server as Hub Transport server?
Posted on 2011-04-30
I am planning to upgrade my single Exchange 2003 server to 2010.
Single Exchange 2003, single database (70GB), single site, 100-200 users.
I am not sure how many exchange server roles should be running in separate box/network.
Q#1. Is it technically ok to install all Exchange roles (including Edge Transport server) in single server?
Q#2. Is it practically safe enough to install all Exchange roles (including Edge Transport server) in single server?
Q#3. Is the performance ok (for my size) if I run Exchange 2010 in VMware (ESX4) environment?
Q#4. Anyone has any virtualization experience of Exchange 2010? What's your configuration?
Thanks a lot.
