I wonder if one of your fine gents could assist.
I have a work server (SBS 2011 / Exchange 2010 etc).
I have a fairly simple Netgear router for broadband and a switch for desktop connections.
My server has two NICs, though one is disabled.
I was wondering if this was possible :-
A friends business (in the same building) wants a server, but there's only two of them requiring it (data storage etc).. Could I virtualise a Windows Server install on my server for him to utilise? Licensing queries aside for a second.
I believe he has his own broadband patched in.
Would SBS allow me to use my 2nd NIC for his virtual server? My server has plenty of headroom I believe..
I guess i'd like :-
<Virtualised Server OS> (within my server) So I can then mess about with where he is patched in to the building.. --> 2x Desktop PC (physical units)
So he can have a couple of domain users and take some of the risk of effectively no backups.. He's not looking to use Exchange or anything, but his data is all over the place and not secure.
Does that sound feasible? or am I missing something obvious?
