The first thing i need say is english isnt my native language so i hope u guys can understand me. I`m willing start host an website and mail services on my home, the problem is i dont have many computers, just an old but "good" computer able to use vmware and run 3 o 4 windows 2008.
The first idea i have is do this setup:
Host Windows 2008 DC Start an exhchange server in one Virtual PC Start an webserver in one Virtual PC Start an database server in one Virtual PC
My question start about the basics, the DNS, reading the microsoft docs, i see is an good pratice do a subdomain for DC and set the main domain on webserver, but i dindt get how this works... The link where i get this info:
So the point is i do the DC, install the Webserver, start an dns, set the DC DNS as forward to webserver DNS? Then the DC dns become something like as secondary DNS is it?
The setup i`m planning is the best option? Someone could gimme an hint if i would start by this setup or where i can get more info to my limited structure?
My PC Hardware:
16 GB RAM
3 HDs 1 TB each RAID 1+0
Processor Intel Core 2 Quad Extreme 3.2 Ghz
