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.
