Business Contact Manager 2010 on a Windows 2008 R2 Terminal Server in SBS 2011 domain.

Hi

We have 3 Servers in an SBS 2011 Domain all residing in a datacentre:

1 x SBS 2011 Advanced Domain Controller - Exchange 2010.
1 x Windows 2008 R2 Terminal Server running Office 2010 Professional.
1 x Windows 2008 R2 Database Server running SQL / FirebirdSQL / Apache.

We would like to install Business Contact Manager 2010 on the 2008 R2 Terminal Server alongside Office Pro Plus 2010 and have the BCM database reside on our other Windows 2008 R2 server and proper support to Exchange 2010 on SBS 2011.

We are unsure as to whether BCM has support on SBS 2011 and Exchange 2010. We see mention of SBS 2008 and Exchange 2010 only. It is ambiguous from the articles we have read.

Has anyone done this, or know if supported?


Kind regards

It should work just fine.  You need to use the BCM Database Tool to install the database on another computer not running BCM:

Hi Jeff

Thanks for the comments, I appreciate that you answered :)
We are already familiar with the document you provided however we were unsure as to the whether or not it is supported in our particular setup with SBS 2011. A lot of documents on the web state it is not.

We are just going to try it and see.

Thanks again and all points awarded to you for caring to answer.
