Can SmarterMail server and domain data reside on different IP addresses/devices?
Question asked by Chaz Frank - 1/15/2021 at 4:00 PM
MY domain data email is on a 2008R2 server . I cannot install the latest SmarterMail server on 2008R2, so must upgrade the device to 2012R2+. . I cannot upgrade for another week, but email is down and cannot endure that much more downtime . I can use a VPS with later OS for SmarterMail installation and reference the email files on the 2008R2. I cannot find a definitive answer as to whether that would work, though seems like should be possible.

You can, we will be moving our SM over to an iSCSI device here shortly, all of our tests showed it works without issues. But as far as like a mapped network device, I am not sure if that would be wise, but I guess it just depends on the size of your mail server. Why not just migrate all the data over?
