No. According to the well hidden and difficult to follow documentation on MSDN (here) it requires Windows 2008 / Windows Vista or later.

100 users is nothing even for an entry level server and a switched 100 Mbit/s network. Best practice dictates: A second domain controller for reliability Reliable/redundant hardware (for example, not the glorified desktop tower servers) 100 Mbit/s network card and network infrastructure Antivirus.... see this site ad-nasuem! Domain controllers by ...

That also looks about right to me. Do keep in mind that you won't be using all of that at once, so plan for expansion. You can start smaller, but so long as you can add space when you need it you can grow into that size. Another thing Microsoft recommends is to keep your individual database sizes down. Should any one of them blow up, a 1.9TB DB is going to ...

You may benefit from perusing the "Planning Domain Controller Capacity" section over at the TechNet library. You will find that, as Jon Rhoades mentioned, 100 users is virtually a non-issue for any server and network device manufactured in the last 5 years. Unless, of course, you have some special uses that should be taken into account. Could you give us ...

It's impossible to tell without knowing anything at all about the application. For bandwidth, you need to take into account how much network traffic each request generates; how's the website displayed? Does it make a lot of use of graphics/video/sound? Does it refresh the page very often? Does it use AJAX? You should know how much traffic a user can ...

If I am reading your numbers correctly, and you said 2000 users per mailbox server, then the math looks good to me. (4GB mailbox store + 4GB copy from other server) * 2 servers = 16TB. Of course Exchange isn't my thing, so I can't really comment on if the copy is really that big or not.

In my case, the server was not resolving the netbios name of the source server. I had to use Shift +F10 to open a command prompt and then edit the hosts file - then it worked. I consider this a bug. Another note, some postings out there suggest that you should edit 'Impersonate a client after authentication" in the Domain Controller Group Policy ...

Edited as I reread the question: If you're doing 2000 mailboxes per server in a single database per server: 2000 mailboxes * 2GB = 4TB per database If you have 2 active databases: 4TB * 2 databases = 8TB for active databases but you have two servers in a DAG so each server requires 8TB: 8TB per server * 2 servers = 16TB total storage The chart you ...

The required specs are really low. Propably the cheapest you can get. Try getting a dedicated server, not VPS, with dual HDD as raid-1 and preferably core2 or better processor. This would cost <- $50/month in Europe or U.S. Rent a dedicated server and choose a provider which can list a few options where you can choose one. Then they will have the same ...

I concur with TerryS, the maths look good. From experience I would warn you, though. Don't expect this to work too well. 2000 mailboxes per server is definitely on the very high side of things. I would suggest you have a chat with some experts on MS Exchange. Most likely they will tell you that you shouldn't have more than a few hundred mailboxes per ...

Make sure DCOM and 'Impersonate a client after authentication' have been configured correctly. Launch Component Services (DCOMCNFG) Expand Component Services -> Computers -> My Computer Bring up the Properties dialog box for My Computer Click on Default Properties tab Check the box 'Enable Distributed COM on this computer' Make sure Default Authentication ...

That looks to me like a WMI permissions issue on the old server. I've been using these instructions recently on issues like that.

Like any database, the DC will benefit from being able to load the entire ntds.dit file into memory (rather than having to access the copy on disk all the time) so size the RAM appropriately. That said, for 100 users, I don't think you're going to need that much (unless you have 1000s/millions on non-user objects taking up all the space). A server with a ...

The English version of this states: Is the IP address registered under your company's name/domain name? Or do you have exclusive sending rights from the IP via your hosting company (not shared with any other senders)? Please provide supporting documentation. Basically you need to prove to them that that the IP address you are using to send ...

Rather than guess, or asking us to guess for you, why don't you run some benchmarking tests? If you really want an answer you need to supply details. You haven't even stated what OS or web server.
