I want to replace my Windows Servers 2016 with an fresh UCS installation.
As it is my private home system, i have no problem to start with a fresh UCS system
Actually i have 3 Windows 2016 Servers with forest level 2012_R2.
I tried to connect UCS to this, but it fails, so i decited not to focus on migration.
My Servers are as followed:
1x Windows Server 2016 as DC
1x Windows Server 2016 running Exchange 2016
1x Windows Server 2012 R2 as file server, also running an DMS software (EcoDMS)
All servers are running on a HP MicroServer Gen 8 with 16GB Ram, Celeron 1610T, 4x 4TB HDD as Raid1 (8TB total) and ESXi on a 250GB SSD in the ODD port of the server.
ESXi is running from the internal MicroSD card.
I want to start on the same server with Proxmox, which will be placed on the SSD with all coming VMs. There is also a NAS which will be the backup place for the VMs of the SSD.
The HDDs will be the data store for the fileserver.
My thoughts are now as followed:
1x UCS as Master Server (32GB HDD)
1x UCS as Member Server for Kopano as Mail Server (100GB HDD)
1x UCS as Member Server for File Server + DMS software (Not sure which software, i guess only UCS and some shares to the Datastore HDDs?) (32GB + 8TB Datastore)
Does it make sense doeing it like this or what would be a better solution in your eyes?
With best regards,
