Running Fax Server Role on Windows Server 2012 R2 Hyper-V Host
Posted on 2016-11-07
A very small amount of faxes are received each day, like 1 to 5. We have a Dell PowerEdge Server (15k RPM drives, 64GB RAM) that is running Server 2012 R2 Hyper-V as a host to three VM's. We want to plug in a US Robotics USB modem and install the Fax Server role on the Hyper-V host to receive faxes. We don't want to spend money on eFax or a Digi device or eltima.com or fabulatech.com since we already have spent good money on existing hardware. Has anyone else done this? Are the any side effects by doing this? Since the load is so small I don't see how there would be any negative impacts. Please help, thanks.
