Default LCS 2005 architecture questions


Hey there,

We're contemplating a smaller LCS 2005 deployment (< 2,000 users) and I have
a question about the different servers roles with the new version. My
questions are:

- Is it possible to combine the roles of Director Server and Front-end
(Home) server on the same physical machine?

- If exposing the IM service externally (for remote users), can the Access
Proxy Server just be an existing proxy server or is it a special LCS server
role? eg. Could we use our existing MS ISA firewall/proxy server to reverse
proxy the LCS service and expose it? Or is it a special function that's
normally performed by a dedicated LCS machine?

I've read the MS architecture guide, and it's very good, but as they're
dealing with an 80,000+ seat deployment, the specifics are fairly different.
Any help would be appreciated.

Regards,

Hello James,

LCS 2005 is still in Beta; if you are a participant in the beta program you
need to post your question in the appropriate private newsgroup. Otherwise,
it would not be appropriate to make forward looking statements.
