Setting up small 12 user network. Very tight budget
Bought Dell Server with 16gb ram, Xeon CPU E3-1225 3.30Ghz
(1) 2TB SSD. (1) 500GB SSD
Bought and installed Windows 2016 Standard.
Installed it with AD on the 2TB SSD
Bought Exchange 2016
I've noticed that it's probably not good to put Exchange on this same machine (Although some have said with such a small amount of users it might be ok?), and buying another machine might not be possible yet, so my questions are:
Can I do a hyper-v guest install on this machine and put exchange there?
If so.. What advice on setting up the Hyper-V guest for exchange? Like how much ram to allocate or space.
Any advice on the actual installation of Exchange in the guest VM?
I did see that it should be on it's own drive (thereby my 2nd SSD that's 500GB).
Advice on how to connect it to the AD that's on the machine.
