I'm currently working with 3 servers in dev env. The objective is to replace the current all-in-one SP server.
This is what I planned :
- One for SQL Database (because SQL uses a lot of RAM)
- One for SharePoint 2013 hosting Central Admin, and my intranet website
- One for SharePoint 2013 hosting my extranet website.
Does that take any sense for you ?
I mean : I thought that if I put 2 SP servers in a farm, I could use server1 for intranet with AD auth, and server 2 for extranet with FBA SQL Auth. I thought that its better to separate SQL Auth and AD Auth, same for intranet/extranet...
I set up a dev env, and when I create a web application, I cannot choose on which server it will be hosted, because I didn't understand that 2 SP servers (if i'm right) are hosting the iis site, and if 1 break, the site still up.
Can someone help me understand what I really need ? I mean, separate AD Auth/SQL Auth for security reasons are the good reasons ? Same for intranet/extranet ?
Feel free to ask for more details obviously.
EDIT : to clarify, the question is : What would you advice me to do, knowing that I need both extranet/intranet, with different Auth (SQL FBA for extranet & AD for intranet).
