sbs 2011 on one box
Posted on 2012-09-18
I have a customer who just purchased a new server ( on there own ;-( ) and it was delivered with SBS2011 Standard pre-installed. They need to run SQL and Remote Desktop for 8 outside users. The licensing documentation for SBS2011 Standard and the Premium Addon are all over the place. I am looking for a definitive answer from someone who has actually set-up an SBS2011 Premium server, please. There are posts out in Google who state with the premium add-on I can set-up Win2008R2 on the box in workgroup mode, then create two virtuals one for SBS2011 and another virtual for the SQL2008R2 or Terminal server.
My question, is this actually possible? Can Win2008Std, which comes with the premium add-on, run more than one HyperV, the documentation I find with MS says I need Enterprise to run more than one HyperV.
Thank you in advance for your insight....BM
