Experts, I have this question posted in 2 areas, Hardware, Routers and Networking because I believe this question covers both areas.

We are looking for a Network Management solution.
I currently am looking at IPSwitch and Orion by Solarwinds.net

I am asking for some personal experiences and advice with either of these 2 products or even something else.

We are a med-small business, with 10 Servers running 2000 Server and 2003 Server.
We have 4 locations and are under 100 PC's.
We have 10 Servers, 3 Switches, 1 Router, 25 Printers, and several PC's currently to monitor.
We are growing and my boss likes to stay current.
We will be setting the switches for management and setting up SNMP.

I started to look at HP Openview and Dell Openview, but I believe they have too much bloat for a company of our size.

Thanks in advance... Michael
