Hi all, I'm planning on installing ZCM, I'm currently running ZEN 7 just on a single server.
I have 7 sites, with my site as a hub, all sites connected on quite a fast WAN link.

Looks like I'll be needing a primary server at my hub and a satellite at each remote site.

Questions I'd like some input on please are

1. Are there any advantages / disadvantages on installing SLES or W2003 on the primary server
2. Are there any advantages / disadvantages on installing SLES / W2003 on the satallite servers.

3. I was plainning a single server as my primary server with the embedded DB but the docs say up to 500 devices where as I will have a few thousand. If the server is servicing 7 sites each with 200 to 500 devices would it be better to have the DB on a separate server. Also, are the DB's that are supported only able to run on Windows ?

Thanks for comments / advice given.
