We are currently running Windows Small Business Server 2008. This server is currently experiencing various issues and needs to be replaced.
As an equivalent option, because Microsoft no longer offers SBS, we are planning on deploying a Windows 2012 R2 server which will act as a file & print server, DNS, DHCP, and Domain Controller. We will also need an internal mail which in our case would be Microsoft Exchange 2013.
I understand Microsoft frowns upon installing Exchange on the same server that is acting as a domain controller. We have been successful in using a single server to host all services listed above in addition to Exchange 2010 (although Microsoft also says not to have Exchange 2010 on the same machine as a domain controller).
I’m looking for input in this regard. What are the primary concerns of having both services run on a single machine? Can it be done anyway? What potential issues could we face? If in fact there is no option to setup two separate machines, could we minimize potential issues by sticking with Exchange 2010 rather than Exchange 2013?
Network Monitoring is essential to ensure that computer systems and network devices are running. Use PRTG to monitor LANs, servers, websites, applications and devices, bandwidth, virtual environments, remote systems, IoT, and many more. PRTG is easy to set up & use.
