Server setup for SIMS
I'm just doing some of the prep work for setting up our new Hyper-V host on which we will be hosting SIMS. Currently our LEA who setup and support our SIMS insist on a two server model. A front end (the S drive) and the database itself on another server. What is the recommended setup? and what do others do? because I don't want to setup another virtual server unless I have to.

Doesn't necessarily need two servers IME, but two separate disks can help - say if you have the database on a physically separate disc or array (or SAN/spindles) to the software.

The S drive isn't really what you'd call front end. We're not talking about a webserver, it's fairly static mostly read only data. It just needs to be shared and accessible to the users.
Typical setups, have the SQL db on the default local C drive and then the S drive share, is on another disk e.g. D: drive.
The front end is really the desktop client.
