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

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.
