UserGroup Tour Q&A: San Fran, Irvine, San Diego

During the User Group Tour that just completed, I ended up receiving a lot of questions.  I thought it would be beneficial to add the Q&A here to my blog for all to read.  There is no order to the questions (other than first come first served), and this blog post will be updated over time, so if you get it with your RSS feed, you may want to view it online and return later.

Let's dive into the questions I've received so far:

Question: What is the size limit of the Exchange Store with SBS 2008

Answer: With Exchange 2007 Standard edition included with SBS 2008, the store limits are the same as with Exchange Enterprise server.  With a limit of 250GB, to 16TB (with a registry key toggle). More information here.


Question: Can I migrate to SBS 2008 from SBS 2003 and SBS 2003 R2?

Answer: Yes, you can migrate from both editions using the same documentation available here.


Question: What are the important links from the deck

Answer: There were a few: Hyper-V Proposed Support on the SBS blog, The SharePoint Kit, The Official SBS Blog, Nick King's Marketing Blog, and SBS 2008 Public Newsgroups.


Question: Can the second server be used in TS-Application mode, so you don't have to connect to the entire desktop to run an application?

Answer: Yes, but it requires additional TS CALs
