I seem to have the most unideal server setup so here we go:

Situation: 1 Server (2008 Std), Exchange 2010 (CAS + HUB) and Sharepoint Services 3.0 installed on it.

Mission: To get OWA working at: and Sharepoint at,

Execution: you tell me how, becuase I do not know where to start :(

I would strongly advise you not to do this. And if only one server is availble to run the WSS instance in a VM. I can only see endless headaches and downtime coming out of this setup. – ITGuy24 Dec 22 '09 at 16:31
hmm ok thanks :) – bear Dec 24 '09 at 2:46

I've been advised not to do this, and henceforth, I abandon this attempt.

So you choose yourself instead of the guy who helped you... interesting ;) – MadBoy Jun 17 '10 at 20:40

This is not really recommended as SharePoint tends to take over the .NET and IIS configurations and generally wreak havoc for non-SharePoint things. It can be done (see Small Business Server as proof), but it generally isn't worth the effort. Virtualize if you can, SharePoint web servers run great as a VM and you can host the SQL inside the VM for low traffic, or on your Exchange box or elsewhere if necessary.
