5 Clients, 1 server...have some questions.
Posted on 2004-11-13
Ok setting up a small network, 5 clients, 1 server.
I am very familiar with Windows Server 2003, that will be what I am using.
The server will be mainly used as a file server, housing excel spreadsheets and maybe a small application.
It will also run Exchange Server 2003.
All the hardware will be bought from Dell.
Will a celeron processor with like 1 gb of ram run that well? Or will using the P4 really increase performance? Can you give me some minimum specs for a server that does what I stated above well?
Question 2: Sadly, I don't mess with exchange that much... how hard is it to set up for a small network like that. (FYI, we are upgrading from an older network with exchange so I have all the numbers etc.) Any Tips?
