I am in the process of setting up a small network in our office. I recently purchased a new Dell Power Edge server (3Ghz Xeon, 2GB RAM, RAID 5 Configuration, Redundant Pwr Supply, etc) with WIN2003 Server installed. I also need to have up to 5 simultaneous Terminal Server connections connecting to this server from the outside. I plan on having the new server act as a file and application server for our LAN and will also be running SQL server and our ERP system on the box as well. I feel that I can run this as a stand-alone because I only have 8 people inside the LAN who will be connecting.
I would like to know if anyon has any suggestions as to this configuration being OK or needs work. I have outline an example below:
|---SERVER (running SQL, Term Svr, ERP system, Shared Folders)
|---LAN COMPuter 1
|---LAN COMPUTER 2
|---LAN COMPUTER 3
|---LAN COMP 4
|---LAN COMP 5
