    Hi 2 all, I'm new at ispconfig.
    I need to build multiserver platform with separate mail and hosting.
    I want to have one master server and few slave servers.
    I have one hardware server - dom0, and few virtual servers - xen1, xen2, xen3.
    The question is where to install master server?
    1. I can install master server on dom0, all other VM's will be slave servers.
    2. I can install master server on xen1, mail server will be xen2, hosting server will be xen3
    3. I can install master server and mail server on xen1, hosting server will be xen2, xen3 is not used.
    Which way is better?

    1) I won't install master on dom0, better install it inside a vm.
    2 + 3) are both ok. If you plan to get a big setup with many servers over the time, then use 2 and 2 is more secure than 3.

    Thanks a lot, till, for advice!
    What is tha main difference between 1) and 2)?
    I mean, when xen1 is just master control panel, empty from any other services; and when xen1 is master, but handle some of slave services, such as email. Is 2) more secure than 3) in single-hardware config?
    I have bought manual for the team support. Hope I can post another questions here while setup and get support, thanks again.
