I am about to replace an SBS 2003 server (see question ID27789091) and will probably purchase SBS 2011, with the Premium add-on.
Now I know that the Premium add-on gives a second Windows 2008 R2 standard license. However the question is, can I have MORE than two servers within an SBS 2011 domain (I know that the SBS 2011 box needs to be the AD controller) ?
At present I envisage one box for the general SBS stuff (AD, DNS, DHCP, WSUS etc) plus Exchange and a second for Sharepoint and SQL server.
However, it might make sense to have a third box for general file-and-print duties (and maybe double-up as a Lync server) and possibly even a fourth for CCTV footage.
Assuming that I buy Windows 2008 server licenses for the third and fourth servers, can SBS 2011 cope with my proposed setup (and do the user CALs cover multiple servers) ?
Finally, I know that the modern trend is towards virtualisation, but for resilliance reasons, my MD does not want all of our (IT) eggs in "one basket".
As always, any feedback or guidance gratefully received.
