Hi Scott,

I have used DL360’s in production many times and they are a good selection for a reasonable installation of WDM.

My personal set up is teamed NIC’s for fault tolerance and move the Inetpub to a partitioned D: drive. (Don’t use 2 separate NICs with IP’s as WDM will not work multihomed)

Really a second server for SQL is overkill, I would use and existing SQL installation if you have one or just install full SQL locally on the WDM server. It will not have a significant impact on performance. If you do load it all on one box, install SQL to the default C: drive buy set the Database directory to D:/MSSQL.

Also check out the build docs in the Rapport downloads section on this site, the hotfixes will not be required for WDM 4.5.1 but the general process is still correct,

Cheers,
-TT
