    Hello! I am about to deploy True Image 8.0 Enterprise Server into our environment to image multiple hosts. I have a Dell 2850 with plenty of disk space, and this server will be the central repository where all my server images are stored and restored from.

    My question is...should TI8 be the only app running on this server? That is, should this server be dedicated to only imaging, or is it safe to install some other third-party applications on the server to share it with? I also have a patch deployment tool and a centralized disk defragementation tool I need to install somewhere...I wasn't sure if it was a good idea to install these apps on the same server. My concern is less about file conflicts as it is about image performance and integrity.

    Thanks!
