Are you saying that you are running Domino on a partitioned server and would like to put your BES on one of the partitions?

Are all the Domino servers in one Notes Domain or does each location have it's own Notes Domain?

Ok, then you should have no problem setting up your BES. It will be best if all of your mail servers and the BES server are in the same Notes Named Network, but since you are just starting out, it's not essential. The installation should be extremely straight forward. Just follow the instructions from RIM. Unless you expect to have over 400 BB users, I would go with MSDE for your database. Other than that, there are really no other decisions to be made.

One final piece of advice is to use a generic Windows login to do the installation of the BES. This account will be used to run all of the BES Services. If this account is disabled, the BES will no longer work.

We brought a new Domino server online and installed BES on it along with SQL 2000 SP3. We choose to put our BB router in our company's DMZ and NAT it back to the main BES server.

BES and Domino have to reside on the same server.

We are in the planning stages of bringing a new Domino/BES server online to act as a failover. We will use Domino clustering and one way SQL replication.

We will also locate them in separate buildings.

The installation guide is pretty straight forward and worked just fine.

We also installed a new server to host our 4.0 BES. Our original 2.2 BES was on one of our Passthru servers, but didn't have the horsepower that we wanted to handle our increased BB community. The complexity of your environment will definitely be dictated by the size of your BB community. You can always switch to a full blown SQL server installation later if you find that you need increase your BES capabilities.

I had some not so great experiences with Domino clustering in the 2.2 release, but that was mainly due to the Blackberry Desktop software. I think that you might have better results with an all wireless environment.
