Effect of having mulitple IP addresses on an SBS2008 system
Posted on 2013-05-14
I have inheritied an SBS2008 setup to support and the client is requesting some additional SPAM filtering above and beyond what exchange does.
A solution I have found sets it self up as a Proxy receiving the email and forwarding it on to exchange.
To install it on the same server as the exchange server, the installation instructions recommend that an additional IP address is added to the SBS2008 server. My question as this is not a recommended/supported configuration of the SBS server, what would the effect be on the SBS2008 server of having 2 IP addresses, and would it continue to function okay.
(The customer is not willing to spend money on a new server, and the system is setup in a virtual machine environment or else I would just bring up a VM and install the spam filter on an new OS instance).
Thanks for any help
