Windows Server 2019 / Exchange 2019 with VM



we planed to install a new Server with new hardware.


We will install Windows Server 2019 local on the machine, and than we will use 2 VMs.


1 VM Windows Server 2019: AD, Fileserver, Printserver, Database for Apps.

2 Vm Windows Server 2019 with Exchange 2019


Is this correct, that i will install the PM on VM1, and only install the Server Security 14 on VM1?

On VM2 should install Server and Email Security 12.12?

Must i install the Server Security on the local installed Windows Server 2019, too?



regards Manuel.

    Hi Manuel


    It is best practice to protect the host as well, so we suggest to install Server Security on the local Windows Server 2019 too.


    Local Windows Server 2019 - install SS 14

    VM #1 - install PM 14.20 and SS 14

    VM #2 - install ESS 12.12


  • Hi Jamesch,


    thx for the answer.

    i saw that the ESS 12.12 don't  support the Exchange 2019.


    Is there a newer version out yet?

    Hi Manuel


    No ETA on newer version, but we do have a latest build of ESS 12.12 which supports Exchange 2019.
    Please let me know if you want that, and I will send the link through private message.
  • Hi, yes please send me a Link.
