Hi there, I need to setup a new server, we are looking at a DL380 G9
We have a mainly mac environment but we want to bring email in house with file storage too.
There are only around 16 users with mailboxes totalling GB
The file storage if the big question mark but probably around 3-4TB which allows plenty of growth.
The server will kind of be an SBS setup. Would it be better to have separate servers for exchange and one for AD and file server? Or can we get this all onto 1 server with server 2012 without a problem,?
As for the Raid setup I have read a few things which are advising me against raid 5 for exchange, So can you advise me of the best setup for the above setup? Im assuming having the exchange database of a raid1 and the file storage on raid 5 or 6, but your advice will be very welcome.
