New SBS 2011 Setup

Last Modified: 2013-12-02
I went to a new client the other day that had a 5 client workgroup. He advised me that he was purchasing a new piece of software that dan on SQL 2008 and that would I quote for the new server installation etc. I advised him that the New SBS 2011 premium would do this and more i.e. email share-point etc. this is where the fun starts

The software company said they cant load their software or SQL database on a Domain Controller. security issues with local user groups

Dell said when getting a quote for the server that you need 2 ( performance issues)

Was i wrong to advise this product and Can you if i need to load the SQL database that comes with 2011 on a new member server in the domain ?

Any advice would be great.
