Deploying HMC 3.5 Deployment step help needed.

Hello, I am looking to deploy HMC for hosted exchange. This is our first experience with HMC / Microsoft Provisioning. My company has an SPLA agreement, and the Installation media.

I have read through the deployment instructions several times, but I'm still not sure how to deploy it in our enviroment.

We are running a non-clustered, Front end - Back end enviroment of exchange 2003 enterprise edition with SP2.

I currenly one have: 1 front end "which is a DC", 1 back end "not a DC", and a seperate 2003 standard server running MSSQL 2000 enterprise with SP4.

I am not sure which parts should be installed where.

If anyone could help with the steps that I will should to follow, and what pieces should go on which server please let me know.

You should consider using the Consolidated HMC 3.5 platform

1 - adc, 1 - mps/sql, 1 - fe, 1- be and fairly simple to expand on

To add on Jim's recommendations, the consolidated servers deployement guide provide you the step by step deployement information for a reduced set of users (and thus servers) from which you'll be able to scale out later on.

The documentation is available as an add-on to the HMC v 3.5.

Ok, I downloaded the consolidated deployment guide. Now I am wondering what it references when it says things like:

Procedue SWSPV.** etc.

and setup 4, 5, 6, 7...

The Consolidated Deployment Guide makes reference to the main HMC 3.5 Deployment Docs.  So when it says "perform procedure DWSPV.**", you need to open the HMC 3.5 document viewer, and search for that procedure.

Hope this helps,

Deployment Automation features in the HMC 3.5 deployment tool
The HMC 3.5 deployment tool carries out a lot of automated tasks, with somewhat mysterious names like "Initialize Active Directory for Hosting".  Many customers have asked me what it is actually doing to their Active Directory configuration!  This info is actually buried in the HMC 3.5 documentation (in the Deployment Automation Appendix), but I have created a simple listing of what each step actually does. I've posted it on the new HMC blog - Stay tuned for weekly postings on HMC 3.5 and the soon-to-be released HMC 4.0.....

Minimum servers needed to host CRM 3.0 on HMC 3.5
I am interested in developing a Hosted Messaging and Collaboration Environment, specifically tailored to provide CRM.  Most of our customers will want exchange and some sharepoint. I am trying to come up with the absolute smallest server footprint for the initial deployment, while still maintaining necessary redundancy an service distribution.  ie (2 domain controlers, internal and external DNS, etc.)  I would like to piggy back as many services as safely possible.  I would like to avoid clustering Exchange and SQL servers in the beginning, unless that is a terrible idea...

Deploy 3.5 web app on .NET 3.0 web server?

Newbie needs VWDE deployment help. Need to import database from local machine to shared host.
Greetings,  I'm trying to migrate a website on shared hosting (Godaddy) from Classic ASP to ASP.Net. Having one major issue. I have figured out that when you create roles and users in VWDE, it creates a database(aspnetdb.mdf) in the App_Data directory and that is where the informaion is stored. On my shared hosting through Godaddy, you can select "schema features" that sets up your SQL database with all the tables the same (or at least very similar) to the aspnetdb database. I've been wading through countless posts regarding issues with Godaddy / ASP,Net. Most of the posts ...

Manually Deploying .NET 3.5
Hi,Soon I will be starting to build a new website using ASP.NET, and naturally I want to start by using the latest version of .NET. However, I discovered that the hosting that we have runs only .NET 2.0 and they refused to install 3.5 for us (irrationally IMHO). We're also stuck with them for over 12 months, so I can't just change away to a better hosting company. As a last ditch idea to try and get to use .NET 3.5 features (LINQ please!) in the website, I came up with an idea; however I don't know whether it will work at all (hence why I'm asking before I get in too deep). A...
