I am working to setup 2 physical servers. We have about 30 users. 10 of which are part time.
Server 2008 Standard
Intel Core i7 930 @ 2800 MHz
AMCC 9650SE-4LPML SCSI Disk Device (1000GB)
Server 2012 standard
32GB of DDR3 RAM
4 x 120GB Solid state drives running in RAID 10 configuration
2 x 2TB Standard hard drives running in RAID 1
Dual CPU system with Xeon E5-2620s
I want to install exchange 2013, domain controller, remote desktop and also use server 2 as a file sharing server.
Do i have to purchase a third physical server for a proper setup?
Server 1: install exchange, server 2: install domain controller, server 3: remote desktop
Also which one should be the file sharing server?
Should i be setting up a virtual machine on server 2?
I would like to do it with only 2 physical servers if possible but i don't want something that will cause lots of problems either.
Let me know your thoughts.
