Back Office 2000

By Realm Master ·
With the concept of "MultiServer" in BackOffice Server 2000, you can install Back Office 2000 files on three servers in the same domain. But, can you have more than three servers on the same domain? If you install Back Office on three and have theothers just Windows 2000 servers, will there be any problems? All Microsoft will say is you can install Back Office across a max of three servers, but no more. I need to know if I can add other servers to my domain that don't have Back Office on them just Windows 2000.

Back Office 2000

Hi,

The simple answer is yes.

The restrictions only apply to BackOffice on servers in a Multiserver environment, not servers in general!

Here are the FAQs on BackOffice2000.

(remove spaces from the above URL)

And here is the Multiserver specific pages - including some suggested implementations...

http://www.microsoft.com/technet/treeview/default.asp?url=/TechNet/prodtechnol/bosi/evaluate/featfunc/multisvr.asp

(...again remove spaces...)

In practice, you can have as many servers in a domain as you like - although there is a theoretical limit which I cant remember right now - but is something like 65535 machines.

Cheers,
Tim.
