Trying to configure network... Do i need a domain controller?
Posted on 2005-05-03
I am putting together a network of about 8 workstations and a server. I want them to be on a domain though. My question is: should I have more than 1 server. I was reading a book that said I should have 3 servers: 1 for my domain controller and NS1, one for my file server and NS2, and one for my web server and email server. for a network my size do i need this. keepingf in mind I will be running 8 workstations 4 network printers, a full time vpn to the other office. If I do need the extra servers. my next question is do they need to be as good as my file server was going to be? I bought a dell 1425 thought ide use that for the domain controller, I got it real cheap. But I might not keep it. Im very very lost at this point. been trying to figure out what to do all day going back and forth. I'm sure someone just knows the right thing?????
