We upgraded one of our customer’s servers from SBS 2003 to SBS 2011. I knew about the 75 user limit. I did not know that the 75 user limit added up the users and computers total. This put our count up over 100. Funny thing it never gave us any errors on the SBS 2003 server.
I think after reading the forums the best thing to do now is purchase two copies of Server 2008 standard and Exchange 2010. I want to use the SBS 2011 hardware as the Exchange 2010/ file print server since it is a beefy server with lots of disk space. I was going to purchase a lower end server with Quad core Xeon processor, 16 gigs of RAM and two 450 Gig SAS drives mirrored in RAID 1 and use this for the active directory server.
Moving the AD to the new server should be no problem. But I cannot see a way to move Exchange off SBS 2011 server. Because it is going to use the same hardware as the SBS 2011 server. Any ideas would greatly be appreciated.
