I am sorry if it's not a question should be ask in here.
I have brought two new IBM x3650 M4 Servers with 2 CPUs, 64GB Memory and 4x 1TB 2.5" HDD. I also have Windows Server 2012 Licence.
What I want to accomplish is use these two servers as hyper-v hosts and virtualise everything. But later I read that It is bad to install Domain Controllers to a virtual server (unplanned restarts can cause problems).
So I need some guidance about how to setup my system.
I need to install:
- A reliable DNS Server
- Active Directory
- A Mail Server (Ubuntu)
- A Web Server (Ubuntu)
- SQL Server
These are my important servers that must run. So I want to know which one of them should be virtualised and which one of them should be run on physical server.
BTW We have two factories and these factories will be connected to each other via hardware Firewall that supports VPN.
I am not really sure if I am asking to teach me everything about servers :) I want to learn how to setup a good server system like this but it is hard to find some good tutorials/documants about these sort of thinks.
