I'm currently specifying a new SBS 2011 setup for a client, and they would like to run their accountancy package on a separate server.
I'd plumped for SBS 2011 with the premium add-on package, as this will allow me to run Server 2008 R2 on a separate server within the domain, and run the accountancy package on that (it is non SQL based).
My question is the add-on package is quite a premium compared to the cost of buying windows server 2008 R2 and then adding this as a member server to the SBS 2011 domain.
What advantages do I get from buying the add-on pack that I wouldn't get from installing windows server 2008 R2 on a standalone server, there's no prospect for using SQL on this server in the future?
Are there any disadvantages to doing it this way, i.e. does the add-on pack integrate the server into the SBS 2011 domain in a way that a windows server 2008R2 'standalone' wouldn't?
Thanks for your help
