Need help installing SBS 2000
Posted on 2004-09-29
I need general help with installing SBS 2000. I have so far set up the raid 1 mirror on my new low end server and now I have started to run the install and am up to selecting services. Most of it makes sense to me but have questions regarding whether or not I need the following installed:
Terminal services licensing
I also unchecked IIS which resulted in unchecking of Com Internet Services Proxy which I don't know if I need or not.
The server is on a 3 client network and I want to use exchange services, email, messaging, sharing and thats about it I guess.
Also, since I share my dsl router with other networks, the dsl router is the DHCP and I need to make sure that DHCP is turned off on my new server. All workstations plug directly into dsl router as well as this server. The domain provides the security within the internet router collision domain to isolate us from the others and the router is our firewall.
Also, I need to allow one employee to access her computer from home, probably with remote desktop. So, I need to know if the server will have anything to do with that or if the dsl router is what I need to deal with and how to do this.
Is there anything I can not install or setup after the fact that I should concentrate on now?
What role does active directory play and where do I deal with it in the install?
