    Looking for advice on whether to build a second server to install BES server on or run it on my current SBS 2003 server.

    I'm new to the BES environment and RIM is pretty silent on the matter...

    TIA

    welll.....here's the story....

    RIM says they support it, but when you get down to it you're installing a MAPI client on an Exchange server and that is a BIG no no.

    Also, BES will run on XP Pro although RIM won't support that...:freak:

    There you have it...

    Or load vmware server (free) and do both on the same server.

    This is the sort of thing VMware is for... How many users do you need to support?

    It will run fine on SBS2003. I run it on 2000 Server along with Exchange2k3 and have no problems.
