Specs: Macintosh , Athlon X2 2.8 / 5GB
Hey everyone. Just wondering what I can disable or remove to make my system more efficient. I have SBS 2008. For email we use Google Apps so I want nothing to do with Exchange. We use the server as a domain controller to manage user accounts, DNS/DHCP, and then it has SQL 2008 and runs Microsoft Dynamics CRM for our CRM, and we share files with shared folders that's it.

Since we don't use Exchange, is it slowing the system down or anything by being on there? Just wondering if there's roles or services I can remove that might be using unnecessary resources. Thanks!

Run msonfig from a command prompt, go to the startup tab & uncheck whatever you don't need to load at boot time. Click apply, reboot & click OK.

You can disable Exchange by going to services and disabling all of the exchange services.

How much ram do you have in the server?

I have 4GB but prob upping it to 8GB. It's not slow or anything but just don't use Exchange so wasn't sure if it's necessary to have it on there is all. Figured it must be using memory and what not.
