    Which "server roles" should be selected for Server 2008 R2, which will run MVM?

    fkasper

      I am setting up the Vulnerability manager (for the second time**), running server 2008 R2 as the OS.

      **I had problems the first time setting things up so I reformatted the HDD and just started over. There had been 1 "FAIL" during MVM7.5 setup for sql that I could never get passed).

      I only setup servers occasionally and with server 2008 R2 (perhaps other versions as well) there are several choices/options for server  "ROLES".

       

      I am installing the server 2008 R2 OS with the vulnerability manager "Traveling license", on a new i7 laptop.

      It will be used for conducting audits and  scheduled vulnerability scanning audits in remote areas. Which is why it will have the "traveling license".

       

      I am not sure exactly which server "ROLE(S)" to chose for this new server setup?

       

      There are choices such as:

       

      - Application server

       

      - File server

       

      - Web server

       

      - DHCP server

       

      - DNS server

       

      - HYPER-V server

       

      - Active Directory certificate server

       

      - Active Directory domain server

       

      - Active Directory Federation server

       

      - Active Directory Lightweight directory server

       

      - Active Directory Rights mgmt server

       

      Maybe I missed something in the knowledge base but I did not notice anything that covered which server roles to choose.

       

      Thanks in advance.
