You didn't even give an idea about the number of users that need to be served by this solution.That doesn't give me much confidence in the project.

@EvanAnderson And the consensus is that SBS doesn't make sense today, right? All of my other small customers went with full product versions, so I don't know that the cost was an issue here. I think their PC person just steered them toward SBS.

Would you argue that the specific knowledge needed to make SBS run well is more specialized than the knowledge to keep a normal Windows Server installation healthy? Smaller mindshare, more caveats... more problems?

As for the POP3 mail, it's looks like it's because the previous admin didn't get autodiscover and a few DNS things arranged properly. There's no spam filtering.

If the required interfaces are all configured properly and management and vmotion IPs are reachable, then yes. That's why you can test this in maintenance mode.

Please show the current vswitch configuration. Also, which specific build number of ESXi are your hosts on?
