Need Sharepoint deployment suggestions!
Posted on 2012-08-22
I have one client who owns two companies (A and B, 50 and 15 users) which are on different locations and different domain networks.
Company A already has a Sharepoint site based on WSS 3.0
Company B needs Sharepoint to be deployed. Company B has two old servers running Windows 2003 x86 (file server and DC, out of warranty) and two new servers running Windows 2008 x86
(file server and DC)
Here are a few options i can think of
- Connect both location via VPN, "merge" Company B Sharepoint to the existing Sharepoint site in Company A.
This can be the quickest solution but I hesitate to create user accounts from Company B in Company A's domain
- Deploy WSS 3.0 or WSS 4.0 (Sharepoint 2010) in Company B. This brings a few questions as below
1. WSS 4.0 is 64bit, can I install it on a 32bit server?
2. Can I install Sharepoint on the new DC? The Sharepoint site is sort of a wiki site, light use.
- Any other options?
Thanks a lot!
