At present we host our own web servers in a hosting centre. The web servers
are on a workgroup with a Cisco firewall between them and the back-end
database servers (SQL). Obivously only the database ports are open on this
firewall.

We are in the process of changing all our equipment and I was just wondering
if anyone had any opinions on 'best practise' for this sort of environment?

From an admin sort of view, it would be easier if all on same domain and
SCOM would work better that way but this would open up our SQL servers to
possible attack.

Thanks
