BPS on Domain Controller or Exchange server?

Is it supported and or recommended to install BPS software directly on a Windows domain controller or Exchange server?  I have seen/heard of issues and I need to know the official support status of both configurations.  Any recommendations for or against this type of configuration?


TIA, Mike

Re: BPS on Domain Controller or Exchange server?

It will work on both, but I would put it on exchange before putting it on a domain controller.


On a SBS server its a different story.


If it grows into full BES like it did for me spend a little bit and put it on a separate box or VM at least.
