Server Fault is a question and answer site for system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

We are currently thinking about deploying Essential Business Server 2008 at our head-office. My question is that do I have to install all three of the servers provided by EBS ie MANAGEMENT, MESSAGING, SECURITY?

Can I leave out the MESSAGING server as I really can't think of a use for it at this stage ?

No, you do not need to install all the servers. Only those you require.

Are you really sure about this? I investigated this earlier when considering buying EBS and I found out that I had to install the security suite in order to get exchange working properly (namely web access). – pauska Nov 17 '09 at 22:28
