Does exchange 2010 need to be separate from my DCLocked
My setup is a HP Proliant DL180 G6 box
2 Intel Xeon quad core 2.40Ghz processor
4x HP 6000Gb SAS 10k drives raid 5
I have a SBS2011 as my PDC, file server, print server as a VM on a vmpshere 5 platform.
This has exchange 2010 already install. my question is, will it be better to have a dedicated server running as a VM with Exchange 2010 on it, as ive heard not to run exchange on your DC.
If yes i want to run four servers as VM’s
1) DC,file, print
3)Accounts software Irish, sage
4) Sharepoint, WUS
Can anyone tell me if this is ok to setup and if they have some recommendations for when i set this up. Or if anyone knows of a better way to do this, that would be great advise.
many thanks looking forward to all responses.
