i know I'm not supposed to do it so please, just focus on my question.

i have installed a single server 08 enterprise server in my office.  it is a DC, IIS and I am now installing exchange 2010 on it.

after my exchange is up and running, i want to add three web sites to it.  in the past, i have had trouble with this since OWA takes over the default web site.

Can someone please direct me to some instructions to make this happen please?

thank you

This isn't difficult... not sure why you had problems in the past... you don't put web sites on the default web site... at least you shouldn't.

Create new web sites and define host headers for them.  Done and easy.

But here's a better question - Windows Server 2008 Enterprise gives you a 1+4 license - meaning you can install 4 virtual servers... so WHY would you put all these on ONE server when your license permits 4 to run on the same physical system?  Hyper-V is free and a role, install it, then install 1,2,3, or 4 virtual servers on it, make one your DC, one Exchange, one your web server... and you still have another for something else.

i would do that if my existing server weren't already a virtual server running in vmware on an HP touchsmart 600.

You still have a total of 4 virtual licenses as long as they all live on the same hardware.
