Windows SBS 2011 Essentials questions

    Question

  • Here is my question,

    I want to run SBS 2011 Essentials and Sharepoint foundation

    Here is what I want to end up with

    DHCP server, DNS server, AD, sharepoint, and the remote web access for the 1 remote user (there is no static IP at the office so I wanted to use the microsoft domain for the web access)

    Here is what I have 

    the old server I can run 2003 or 2008 for sharepoint

    I have a new server that I was thinking of putting SBS on

    this is a small office with only 5 in house users and 1 and maybe 2 remote users that would need the web access to get to docs on the road.

    I am thinking that I can do all of this with SBS Essentials but what I am not sure about is the sharepoint part, and I don't need SBS standard because I have hosted exchange. I hope I can install sharepoint foundation on the SBS Essentials server and if so I am good, but if not then I was thinking I can use my current server and make it a sharepoint server but I was not sure if I can join that server to the SBS domain?

  • Hi,

    You can install SharePoint foundation on the premium add-on if you wanted those services locally. I believe SPS is not a supported installation on a DC, so it will be an unsupported installation on the SBSE server itself. But we could join a member into the SBS domain.

    Best Regards,

  • I would go for SharePoint in the cloud.  You can't put SharePoint on a DC.
