Multi-server...any reason?? RRS feed

  • Question

  • We've gone from running all aspects of Live Communications Server 05 on a single server WITH Exchange to needing 3 dedicated servers (Core AV, Mediation, and Exchange Unified Messaging - as of SP1 no longer supported with any other roles) for Office Communications Server 07.


    In the age of server consolidation I'd like to know why on earth this direction was chosen.  I understand load handling etc but with just shy of 100 users per site and quad-core system abundant lack of horsepower couldn't have been the issue.


    Oh yeah - and none of them are supported on Virtual Server?!?


    out buying servers,
