You learned how you can distribute roles among your Windows Server 2008 computers, combining roles as needed to take full advantage of the computers’ hardware resources. However, running multiple roles on a single computer can lead to problems. What are some of the problems you can encounter?
- Ans: Concerning security, the more roles a server performs, the greater the number of ports you must leave open. Concerning updates, running multiple roles requires you to apply more updates.
- Concerning peak usage, different roles have different usage cycles, and the more roles a computer performs, the more complex the convergence of those cycles becomes.
- Difficulty: Hard
